Club News

Fundraisers for the remainder of 2020

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions, all fundraising events have either been postponed or have gone online. Any online raffle ticket sales can be purchased securely through our Square Online Store. As of right now, the 2020-2021 annual ski/snowboard raffle has been postponed until 2021-2022. This is mainly due to restrictions that will be in place at the ski resorts this winter.  The drawing for the Sports Quilt Raffle has been postponed from this year to until Nov. 4, 2021. This is due to Covid-19 restrictions and events we would normally sell tickets at being cancelled this past summer and fall. We do have two raffles currently underway. One is a raffle for various items and gift certificates from local businesses and the other is a Sports Quilt Raffle. Both raffles will benefit eye and hearing care right here in the Mt. Washington Valley. For more information about the raffles, visit our Events page or our Square Online Store. Below are the links to our Square Online Store pages:
