Ski A Thon – Fundraising

February 13th, 2012 by admin Leave a reply »

Message From John Lucas, Fundraising Chair

Our Ski-a-Thon is an annual event we host in the spring. We encourage students to obtain pledges from everywhere possible… family & friends, classmates & teachers, or coworkers & employers. This is a great opportunity for the students to give back to the group and have a lot of fun doing it. It will be a full weekend, with our regular instruction sessions on Saturday, and come Saturday night, a special potluck complete with a ‘Crazy Hat’ contest. This is a fierce competition where you can all quite possibly win…exclusive bragging rights!
On Sunday morning things really heat up, We’ll have a race course set up, just like in the Olympics. Everyone is invited to participate in contests such as best time for a student, best time for an instructor or, most importantly….the most runs. Give it a try!  You might get a plaque at the awards ceremony in June!!

IDEAS FOR OBTAINING PLEDGES

• Pledge yourself first!! It is easier to get others to sponsor the event if they see your commitment.

• A little goes a long way! It only takes 10 people pledging $10 each to earn $100!

• Pledges can be made on a per run or a fixed basis. Fixed pledges, collected in advance, are the best because you don’t have to make a second trip or call to your sponsor – except to say “Thank-You!! We hit our goal thanks to you!”

• Who to ask? Everyone! Ask friends, family, other skiers, coworkers, companies, your boss, neighbors, and so on.

• Many companies have matching programs for charity fund-raisers, or simply have a budget allocated to donate to charity. Does your company have something like this, or do you know someone who does? Ask around – you may be surprised!

• Get your pledge sheets filled out. I’ll be collecting sheets and pledges on Saturday March 31st. We will make more if you need them. Good luck and happy pledging!

Please call or email with any questions.
