Our Pub Night at the Blarney this past Saturday

This event was very successful with 85 adults and 23 kids in attendance. We were thrilled to have many Alumni families in attendance including the Deans family and the Serwa family (Kelsey & Ian, from the Canadian Ski Cross Team) – As Trevor Hanna stated, “We had Royalty in the house”!

We made close to $3500 net which is fantastic considering it did not take away from volunteer manpower on this busy ski cross race weekend.

We also received a $2000 donation from the Legion, presented at the Pub Night by Todd Cashin.

We want to take this opportunity to thank Big White for their support, donations, attendance and flexibility of us hosting it at The Blarney Stone. Also a big thank you to Fresh Air, The Blarney Stone, Prestige Inn, Barefoot Venus, Mountain yoga
Doc Willoughby’s, Bullwheel, Big White Grocery
for their generous donations to our Wheel of Fortune and the various Silent Auction items!

Obviously Jude and the Blarney’s contribution is huge therefore we ask that you thank her personally next time you see her.

It takes a village to fund a ski race program, thank you for being part of our village & our ski family!
