On Friday February 11, 2011, The T.A.D. had their second “ski for kids” for Sick Children’s Hospital. This ski day in the past has been in conjunction with the C.C.R.F. a cardiac group, but last year a decision was made to focus on children with cleft lip and palate,and with the help of Ken Croney and Henry Schein dental , the first ski for kids was held.
The event was held at Alpine Ski Club ,a private club in Collingwood.The weather could not have been more conducive to a successful day with moderate temperatures,and lots of sun. Most people arrived on their own ,but a full bus load brought others for the day. People were greeted by committee members and given their give aways ,then a nutritious breakfast and then out to the slopes. Many were taking complimentary lessons at whatever levels they had. A wonderful lunch ,races during the afternoon and finally apres ski with hot horsdeuvres, complimentary drinks and then raffle prizes 50/50 draws and lots of fun, all for a wonderful cause , children who needed help! In our wrap up meeting held recently we were proud and pleased to see that over $20,000.00 was raised by this event.We need to thank those who attended, somewhere around 175 happy people.Those that participated went home with race prizes give aways and a lot of smiles.
Special thanks to committee members, co-chairs, especially Henry Schein, Sinclair Dental ,those members from our C.C.R.F. Uof T alumni,Alpha Omega fraternity, specifically Christina, Jo ,Wilf ,Mike, Dave , Diane , Arlene ,Earl, Dave , Ragna,and the wonderful team at Alpine.
