MEDIA TO SKI THE SLOPES AT MOUNT BRIGHTON TO BENEFIT SPECIAL OLYMPICS
 SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- TV, radio and print personalities from throughout Metro Detroit will take to the slopes at Mount Brighton (Mich.) on Saturday, Jan. 25, to raise money for the Special Olympics as part of the Jeep-Eagle/Mount Brighton Media Day.
 Sponsored by the Greater Detroit and Toledo Jeep-Eagle Dealers Associations, local media have been invited to Mount Brighton to enjoy a day of free skiing while helping support the Special Olympics.
 Invited guests will form five-member race teams to compete in friendly head-to-head competitions on a NASTAR dual slalom course. The race begins at 1 p.m. Pledges collected by each team will be donated to the Special Olympics.
 More than a dozen teams will participate, including teams from the Detroit Free Press, WXYZ-TV 7, WOMC-FM and defending champions WJBK-TV 2.
 All skiers will also be treated to free tow tickets, ski rentals and refreshments for the day, courtesy of the Jeep and Eagle dealers.
 The Media Day event is an extension of the Jeep and Eagle "Learn to Ski" promotion. Consumers were given complimentary lift tickets, ski rentals and beginning lessons at Mount Brighton for test driving any Jeep or Eagle vehicle.
 This is the third year that Mount Brighton has hosted an event to raise money for the Special Olympics.
