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 in support of the Programs Fundraiser.   

We need Basket Captains! 
Competitive Snowboard: Development team, GROMS Freestyle, OEST Freestyle, Snowboard Racing, Freeski Squad, GROMS Freeski 
Ski Racing: Individual teams from U8 through U16 

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!  It’s up to you to decide. 

Once you have received 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 office by March 1, 2024.   

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