You Are Invited to the 13th Annual Vince Fiore
Memorial Mardi Gras Celebration!
Saturday, March 1, 2008

Our annual fund raiser puts the fun in fund raising! It is a day and night of costumed foolery, starting on the slopes in the morning and winding up in the evening with our one and only Thrift Store Formal. During the day, we strut our stuff down the mountain with a costumed parade followed by gumbo for lunch on the WAS deck. The afternoon is filled with tubing races and the wildly competitive, utterly silly Synchronized Ski Contest. That evening, dressed to the nines in our choicest thrift store finery, we convene at the Rockfish Valley VFD for the truly tasty Cajun Banquet followed by the Thrift Store Formal.


This special event is in honor of the first student of WAS, Vince Fiore. He was an avid skier, and the fact that he had only one leg did not dampen his enthusiasm for the skiing fast! The funds raised on this day are a major source of the money needed to purchase and repair adaptive equipment, for instructor training and overall administration of the WAS program.Image

The Mardi Gras Celebration is for everyone: our disabled students, our volunteers, friends, families and anyone who wants to support this worthwhile cause with a donation.

We are offering prizes for the top three fundraisers at our Mardi Gras Celebration. The grand prize is a ski trip for two to Breckenridge, CO! The prize includes airfare, ground transportation, lodging and lift tickets. Second and third place winners will receive a complete set of ski or snowboard equipment.

$125 minimum donation gets you a lift ticket, equipment rental, and all the fun activities of the day as well as the Cajun Dinner and formal.

$50 donation for the Dinner and Formal.

$25 donation for the Formal only.
