Hmmmm. The Mohonk Preserve has a multi-million dollar visitor center and a two million dollar a year staff. Although a separate corporation, they are functionally the marketing arm as well as the tax avoidance arm of the $600 a night Mohonk Mountain House.

Having a fund raiser for the Mohonk Preserve/Mountain House is like having a bake sale for one of Donald Trump's New Jersey casinos.
