*** UPDATE DECEMBER 2021***
Thanks to the generosity of our Chester Bowl community, Skis, Suds, & Slices 2021 raised over $20,000 for the scholarship fund! Because of all of you, we will be able to continue to offer full or partial scholarships to any family that requests one for summer camp or the winter ski and snowboard program.
Skis, Suds, & Slices 2022 is scheduled for Friday, November 11, 2022; we hope to go back to an in-person format (still allowing for silent auction bidding off-site) at Clyde Iron. Watch for more details here in September 2022. Information below is from the 2021 event and will be updated at that time.
*** END UPDATE ***
At Chester Bowl, we believe that every family should be able to learn to ski or snowboard and attend summer camp regardless of their family income. That’s why we offer full or partial scholarships to any family that requests one. Last winter we awarded $27,000 in winter scholarship to 114 families, and we award an average of $8,000 in summer camp scholarships- that is 250 days of camp!
With many families continuing to feel the financial impacts of the pandemic, we anticipate that scholarship requests will be higher than ever this winter. Can you help us support our scholarship needs through this re-imagined, virtual Skis, Suds, & Slices? There are several ways to help.
Donate: First, you can simply make a donation. All donations are tax-deductible, and every dollar you donate will go directly towards scholarships. You can donate online at this link. You can also send a check to Chester Bowl, 1801 East Skyline Parkway, Duluth MN 55812.
Silent Auction: You can also bid on silent auction items (is it too early to say you could keep Christmas lists in mind?). The auction is open for bidding from Wednesday, 11/10, through 10:00pm on Friday, 11/12. Don’t be afraid to bid high to make sure that you get what you want! Check it all out at this link.
Silent Auction winnings pickup- You can pick up your items on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights (11/15-11/19) between 6 and 9pm during equipment fitting nights. Sorry, we do not ship prizes.
Raffle Tickets: Want to give, but you are also feeling lucky? Buy raffle tickets! Each $10 raffle ticket gives you a chance at incredible prizes- two sets of a pizza a month for a year from Toppers Pizza, a growler a month for a year from Bent Paddle plus a $75 gift card from the Duluth Grill family of restaurants, a pizza a month for a year from Vitta Pizza, and a large ice cream cone a month for a year from Love Creamery! Raffle tickets must be purchased in person. We will sell raffle tickets during our ski and snowboard fitting nights, so you can stop by the Chalet to purchase them then! Fitting times are 5:30-9:00 on 10/27, 10/28, 11/1, 11/2, 11/3, 11/4, 11/8, 11/9, 11/10, and 11/11.
Free Online Event: Finally, although we can’t party in person, we are still having a party! We are hosting a free Zoom event from 7-8pm on Friday, November 12. You can expect to learn about Chester programs and hear how scholarships have impacted families in our community, participate in Chester Bowl trivia, vote for the Twin Ports Best Pizza, witness the live raffle drawing, and more!
