Schweitzer Alpine Racing School (SARS) is holding its Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction event on Saturday, March 2nd. This event supports SARS’ mission to positively impact individuals through ski racing while teaching the lifelong lessons this athletic endeavor fosters in participants of all ages. All of the funds raised will go to support the wide variety of programs we offer every year.
This year’s auction will be held once again at the Sandpoint Events Center. A shuttle will be available from Schweitzer Mountain for a nominal fee. Shuttle bus tickets are available for purchase now on the Auction website.
We are in the process of collecting auction items large and small. Your tax deductible donation of goods, services, or “experiences” will allow us to continue to provide professional, high quality coaching, teaching and lifetime outdoor fun to our athletes.
To ensure a successful fundraiser, participation from all club families is key. Each family please choose two or more of the following: procure donations, make a cash donation, buy tickets, participate in the live and silent auctions, and/or pre-auction volunteering. This event has a limited number of tickets and has sold out for the last five years prior to the event. Absentee bidding is available upon request.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
