Fund Raising Events for 2021-22
Part of the mission of the Cody Figure Skating Club has always been to make sure that skating is an affordable sport for our local kids.
Making and maintaining ice is a very expensive business and buying ice time for our skaters is our biggest single cost. Rather than pass the burden of the true costs of club membership to our skating families, every year we fundraise together to help pay the club bills and keep our kids on the ice. Membership of the CFSC is subsidized for members by $100 per skater and accordingly, all CFSC skaters are expected to fundraise at least $100 each as part of their club membership agreement. Some of the activities planned for 2021-22 are as follows:
Skate-a-Thon - Tuesday Nov 2, 4 - 5pm
This is our main fundraising event for the fall session, but we don't just skate 'laps' for the CFSC! Oh no! Imagine the fun when we set up an obstacle course and create relay races for our young skaters - they have a ball while raising money for our non-profit club. Doing it this way also means that participating skaters can ask for a donation rather than a per-lap pledge.
Remember, all skaters are expected to fundraise at least $100 each as part of their club membership agreement.
We understand that some older skaters may not want to participate in a sponsored event, so these skaters are expected engage in TWO alternatives:
1) Design and construct the obstacle course
2) Starting January, older skaters must find sponsors for our spring competition.
Coach Macey will be contacting the older skaters about the obstacle course.
Karen Anderson will be handing out envelopes with pledge sheets on Sunday, October 9th.
Please return your envelope by October 31.
If your child does not have a ride to the rink after school, please know they may use the school bus that takes kids to the rec center. Coaches can meet your child off the bus and call you to say they have arrived safely.
Gift Basket Auction
In conjunction with the CFSC Show (Nov 21) we will be having a Gift Basket auction. We will be partner skaters in groups of 3-4 and each group will be tasked with assembling a basket worth at least $60. Tickets for baskets will be sold at the show and buyers can deposit their tickets in the jar in front of whichever basket they want. The tickets are drawn to find the winner of each basket.
Basket themes and skater groups will be announced shortly.
