Light It Up! Programs Fundraiser

Thank you to all who took part in our day of fundraising last Saturday at the Club. We had an action-packed day of FUNdraising activities to push us towards our goal, and are stoked to be over 60% of the way there! So far this season, our full efforts have netted us $52,152. Let’s keep the momentum building with more exciting fundraising opportunities coming up this season, our 51/49 Split and Basket Raffle.

Thank you to all members and businesses who volunteered or donated to our fundraising events. Your support is greatly appreciated. With special thanks to Melissa DaCosta, Stephen Riff, Michael Gelfand, Lisa Koster and Jeff Cox for your involvement/donations.


Programs Basket Raffle

Each year we ask that the competitive teams in Snowboarding, Freeski and Racing put together a themed basket of goodies that we raffle off on March 2-3 weekend in support of the Programs Fundraiser.   

We’re still looking for Team Managers or Basket Captains for the following teams:
U8 The Crescendo Allstars 
U10 Team Boomerang
U12 Weekend Team Fire
U14 Weekend Team Blizzard
U14 OCup
U16 Weekend Team Crescendo
U16 OCup

The success of the basket raffle depends on everyone involved.  Your job will be to gather items and assemble the basket.  Your team has options; everyone on the team can bring in an item that corresponds to your basket theme, or you may choose to ask everyone for $10-20 and you go shopping! 

Once you have your items, simply fill a basket and wrap it with cello and ribbon. Please also include a list of the contents in the basket and drop the finished product to the Programs & Events office by March 1, 2024.   

The Programs & Events office can give you basket theme ideas or if you already have a theme, please share with Programs staff so we don’t double up.
