We would like to extend a huge “Thank You!” and our sincere gratitude to everyone who was a part of making our Skis, Suds, & Slices event extremely successful!
Thanks to the generosity of the Chester Bowl community, we raised $8,211.88 for our scholarship fund, significantly exceeding our goal of $7000! Together with the funds raised through gate donations at Fall Fest, this should enable us to grant a scholarship to any family that needs one to participate in our Winter Ski and Snowboard ($12,000 awarded last year) and our Summer Adventure Program ($3000 last year) in the coming year. Thank YOU for your support.
This year we created a travelling trophy for the Twin Ports Best Pizza- as voted on by those at our event and tasting the samples provided by Midi Restaurant, Pizza Luce, Thirsty Pagan, and Vitta Pizza. Our winner was THIRSTY PAGAN, so keep an eye out for the trophy when you next visit their restaurant! In addition to our pizza providers, we also want to thank our other event and food and beverage sponsors, including Little Angie’s Cantina, Bent Paddle Brewery, Castle Danger, Michaud, Blacklist, Fitgers, Fitgers Wine Cellars, The Exchange, Wine Merchants, Bernick’s, Midwest Communications including Justin Michaels from Kat Country 98.9, and ShelDon.
For the first time, we had free babysitting at the event- a movie night in the theater next door for kids ages four and up- with almost thirty kids attending! We expect to offer this benefit again next year.
The event also benefitted from dozens of volunteers, but special thanks go to our planning committee of Andrea Mistelske, Christy Jaros, Stephanie Balmer, Jesse Singer, David Anderson, Kevin Rapanna, and Amy Kranig.
We hope to see everyone at next year’s event!
