The Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team held a successful fundraising event at the Mad Trapper on Oct. 26.

The “Burger and Beer Fundraiser night” ended up raising $3,000 for the club who is preparing to start their season.

Mark Baxendale, president of the club, was very grateful for the support shown by the people who came out to the dinner and silent auction.

“We must extend an enormous thank you to all those that made this event a huge success from both a financial and social success,” he said.

“To the team parents, to those who attended that are not formally connected to the club, to those that walked through the door that just bought a ticket anyway.”

Baxendale also thanked the local businesses who helped in making the event a success.

“To all the businesses in town that gave generous donations to make our silent auction hugely enjoyable and profitable. To the management of the Mad Trapper for allowing us to use their venue and Kisa and Pam for organizing the event at the grass roots level,” he said.

Skiers and coaches are already working out, and taking part in dry land training, along with events planned to get the skiers back on the slopes as soon as possible.
