We are very grateful to have received a $2200 donation in memory of DJ Battle.Â DJ learned to ski here as a child, and received a scholarship to do so. This donation was made specifically to our scholarship fund to pass this opportunity on to the next generation of young children who will grow up skiing at Chester Bowl.Â Thank you so much to everyone who was involved, either by directly donating funds (there were 68 individual donors!), helping to organize the fundraiser, or spreading the word.Â We are deeply grateful!
As an incentive to give, one donor wasÂ chosen randomly to receive this beautiful handcrafted quilt!
