Wintergreen Resort
Nelson County, Virginia

The annual fundraiser puts the fun in fundraising! 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, they strut their 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 their choicest thrift store finery, they 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 fast skiing! 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.Royal Court
