Fundraiser by the Rose’s

Snoawboarding ins’t always cheap, we all know this. However there are tonnes of creative and fun ways to fundraise, and Skylar Rose and his family know that. They hosted a Steak-night & Silent auction and managed to raise some money for the SSA and for Skylar’s season. Here’s a bit of what Stacie Rose had to say about the event:

“We had an amazing turnout of 74 people, lots of great items for raffle and an all-around fun time. Our donors/items included the following:

  1. Outtabounds: Anon goggles, Burton water bag, Burton Beeracuda bag, Burton Lil Buddy bag, Mervin hats, Libtech snowboard wax and DC Tropical Goods mits
  2. SIGA: bunnyhug, toque and scarf
  3. Laura Schappert: 5 pieces of Tupperware
  4. JEBCO: 3M protable labeller
  5. Lawes Oilfield: Polar Ridge softshell jacket
  6. SaskBarley: 3 golfshirts
  7. Cameco: 2 backpacks
  8. Always Green Yard Care: 5d Extreme Coleman cooler, spring-float lounger and 1 Spring Cleanup
  9. Acklands Grainger: Rubbermaid Cooler
  10. SJ Fine Foods: box of various fine meats
  11. Dawn & Jerome Maier: 1 pair of baby moccasins, 1 pair ladies moccasins, 1 handmade quilt and 3 prints
  12. Glenwood Auto Service: 1 complete car detail
  13. Sasktel: Roughrider memorabilia
  14. Freedom Skate & Snow: snowboard and bindings
  15. Moksha Yoga: 1 month unlimited hot yoga
  16. Scoles Fine Arts & Framing: 2 prints
  17. Various cash donations: Liquor basket

The majority of the items were raffled off. We had a gift bag tagged with the name of the item and sold an arms-length of tickets for $10. You then walked around and placed a ticket in the bag of the item you wanted, and we held the draw immediately after supper. Oh, this was held at The Coachman, and they did a great job!

The bigger ticket items we put in a silent auction (snowboard & bindings, car detail, spring cleanup and Roughrider memorabilia). We also had a 50/50, and the winner received about $275 (Jeff from Outtabounds won, which he was stoked about; he and his family were on their way to Vancouver for a holiday).

Overall we raised $2800!! It was amazing. We had great support from everyone, and it was a really great time. Stressful, of course, since this was the first time Jason and I were involved with anything like this, but fun. Austin Hume’s mom (Sherry Townsend) helped out with the event as well.”
