*** UPDATE AUTUMN 2020***

Skis, Suds, & Slices 2020 will be a virtual only event, featuring a silent auction, ticket sales to the virtual event, a giant raffle, and plenty of ways to support Chester Bowl along with our traditional food and beverage sponsors. Please watch this space for more details!

If you are looking to donate silent auction items to the event, please contact Dave at 218-724-9832 or

Information below this update is from 2019, for reference only- there is NO in person option this year.


What if we told you that you could help ensure that any child can participate in Chester Bowl’s programs regardless of income… by eating pizza, drinking beer, and bidding on awesome silent auction items? Sound like a dream come true? Your dream can become reality on November 15th.

Our 12th Annual Skis, Suds, & Slices is coming up, and we want you to be there! This annual fundraiser for Chester Bowl’s Scholarship Fund is Friday, November 15th, 6:00-9:00pm, at Clyde Iron (2920 W Michigan Street, Duluth, 55806).

Our 2018 event raised over $11,000 to support our scholarship fund. That is the equivalent of providing over 400 free days of summer camp to our campers, or providing over 50 families of 4 with a scholarship covering half the cost of the winter program! Can we beat that in 2019?

Skis, Suds, & Slices is a pizza, wine, and beer tasting event with a silent auction. Plus, your vote determines who will receive the “Twin Ports Best Pizza” trophy for the next year! Spend the night in conversation with friends new and old while perusing the fantastic items in our silent auction and participating in other games.

All proceeds from this event support our scholarship fund. Last winter, we awarded $18,498 in scholarships so that all families could participate in our ski and snowboard program regardless of income.  We awarded an additional $7,792 to our Summer Camp families.

Pizza is provided by Vitta Pizza, Bulldog Pizza, Do North Pizza, and Toppers. Beverages are provide by Bent Paddle, Castle Danger, Lake Superior Brewing, Blacklist, Fitger’s Wine Cellar, Lift Bridge Brewing, Earth Rider, Wild State Cider, Ursa Minor, and Hoops Brewing. Additional food is provided by Duluth Grill, Bellisio’s, Amazing Grace, and Little Angie’s. Thank you everyone!

The best thing about this event?  Child care is provided for a recommended donation of $5/child, $10/family!  We will have babysitters provided for children ages 4+ upstairs at Clyde Iron. We plan on having movies showing (to be determined, but appropriate for the youngest) and/or other activities, and pizza from Little Caesars will be provided. Parents will be contacted to take their children to the restroom, so please bring your cell phone if you have one.  Pre-registration is not required.  Babysitters are adults or youth 12+ with an adult monitor.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance at Chester Bowl,  online with the Buy Now button below, or at the door.

Would you like to donate an item to the silent auction? Let us know. Thanks in advance for your donation!

Thank you to all of our donors and other sponsors including Clyde Iron, Sheldon, Kat Country 98.9, My 95.7, 95 KQDS, and 610 KDAL.
