Ski team families are required to raise additional funds over and above the registration fees. We do this via the Askews and Save-On Gift Card programs. These stores have, for several years now, generously donated 7% of the value of gift cards purchased from them. The team purchases over $180,000 a year in gift cards!
Families need to purchase $2,500 of gift cards per child. This equates to raising $175.
To ensure the fundraising commitment is met, post-dated cheques for the amount of $175 per child on the team will be collected at the parents' meeting. If you are unable to purchase the required amount of gift cards cards prior to September 30, 2018, your post-dated cheque will be cashed and a pro-rated amount will be returned to you. New in 2017-2018: Due to the removal of the family rate, families have until September 30, 2018 to fulfill their commitment. In previous years it had been April 30th.
Purchasing Gift Cards
When purchasing gift cards, cheques need to be made out to LHN Jr. Race Team (Larch Hills Nordic Junior Race Team). Families do not need to purchase all of their commitment at one time. They have until September 30th to do so.
Gift Cards can be purchased from Ken and Pat Bakker. Their telephone number is 250-833-4347. Their address is 2180 Auto Rd. SE. They prefer people to drop by their place to pickup cards, but arrangements can be made to exchange at practices.
Just call them or fill in the form below to arrange the purchase of gift cards.
