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 $200,000 a year in gift cards!
Families need to purchase $2,500 of gift cards per child, up to a maximum of $7,500 a family. This equates to raising between $175 and $525.
To ensure the fundraising commitment is met, post-dated cheques for the amount required ($175 for 1 child, $250 for 2 children, $525 for 3+ children) will be collected at the parents' meeting. If you are unable to purchase the required amount of gift cards cards prior to September 30, 2019, your post-dated cheque will be cashed and a pro-rated amount will be returned to you.
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.
