The GKHAT Board of Directors along with the Fundraising Committee is excited to announce our first inaugural Black Tie Casino Dinner and Silent Auction.   The event is being held at the Kicking Horse Day Lodge, Saturday February 19, commencing at 7:00 pm. The event is held to raise money to purchase, construct and furnish a much needed Yurt Style clubhouse for our athletes.

To achieve our goal we need to raise $35,000 and have the clubhouse in place for the start of the 2011/12 season, and we have already raised $7,200 toward our goal, but much more capital is needed. We are hoping that our skiing and snow sport enthusiasts in the community will come out to support this cause.

The event costs $100 per ticket. The bar will operate on a ticket system; all prices are inclusive of tax and gratuity. Childcare is available from 7:00 – 11:00 in the resort Day Care Centre, at the cost of $50 per child, this price includes dinner for your child, and can be booked at the Mountain School Booking Desk, by February 9.

 The casino will comprise of roulette, blackjack and poker.

The Silent auction is being supported by many local businesses and artisans, and will include some great items such as a night for two at the Eagles Eye, Heli-Skiing trips, skis and bindings, BBQ and much more. 

Please join us for this fun event, support our athletes and help us build them the clubhouse they deserve!

 Tickets are available from any member of our Board at: www.gkhat.ca (see Contacts)

Or calling Karen Goodchild at: 250-344-7405 or Janette Schulz at: 250-344-2157. Tickets are on sale now, and must be paid for by Feb 14.

GKHAT is a fun, family oriented Ski Club, with a passion for skiing, inspired by these incredible mountains to build strong, confident, athletic skiers.

Hope to see you there!
