Country Roads Grand Bash @ The Summit Bechtel Reserve
Aug 18 all-day

The Country Roads Grand Bash is an annual philanthropic event benefitting Mission for Miracles, PACE Enterprises and numerous local WV Charities. Join us on August 18-20, 2022, for our Inaugural Event at the Summit Bechtel Reserve!

The Country Roads Grand Bash is an immersive experience opening the doors of Appalachia to attendees across the United States looking to have fun, win big, and make a difference.

Nestled amongst the hills right outside of Beckley, West Virginia, the Summit Bechtel Reserve is an expansive 10,600-acre property boasting world-class facilities, scenic views, lodging, and recreational activities that are second to none. Adjacent to the New River Gorge National River, more than 13 miles of the property borders the park, giving attendees 70,000 acres of managed wilderness beyond the Summit property.

This highly sought-after event is filled with prize cash drawings, luxury vehicles, ATVs, sports memorabilia, the latest hunting and fishing gear, and live entertainment.

The Country Roads Grand Bash is the vacation you didn’t know you needed!

Sponsorship dollars and proceeds from this event will continue to fund MIssion for Miracles’ work by supporting medical facilities that treat neurological conditions (i.e., spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Alzheimer’s) and recovery research facilities.

These dollars will also contribute to the economical growth of Southern West Virginia by helping people with disabilities find meaningful employment through our partnership with PACE Enterprises, LLC and will support local nonprofit’s efforts to focus on the building blocks for a good quality of life: health, education, and financial stability.
