The Chairman’s Holiday Party during COVID-19 by Greg Harden

As the holidays approach we’re pleased to report that while COVID-19 has required some changes to our programs, we anticipate a safe and successful start to the season for our athletes.
 
In seasons past, one of our most popular holiday events has been the Chairman’s Party held in Lake Placid. Although it cannot be held in its normal fashion, we hope you can still celebrate snowsports, the holidays and support the Dare To Dream Scholarship Fund in a number of socially distanced ways – with immediate family and friends in your home and/or on the trails!
 
In lieu of this annual event, we are asking families to purchase a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) “Chairman’s Party” ticket or basket or make a one-time donation to support the Dare To Dream Scholarship Fund. 
 
100% of your donation will go towards the Dare To Dream Scholarship Fund which provides financial support to athletes who have demonstrated high levels of commitment and dedication to their respective sports.
 
Our goal is to raise $25,000 in the month of December. Help us get there!
 
We will miss celebrating and socializing with everyone but hope to see everyone at Belleayre, Gore, Whiteface, Mount Van Hoevenberg or the Ski Jumps this winter.
