One of our objectives is to keep our programs affordable to our members while pursuing our vision. In order to do so, we rely on fundraising activities to generate close to 40% of our revenues.
We require each family to take part in the Grocery Program, and the Silent Auction. In addition, each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 2 shifts at fundraising or social events. These events include the ski swap, the silent auction, Casino and the spring BBQ.
Through the generous contributions of Sobeys we are able to offer our grocery program, which allows families to raise funds for us by shopping for their groceries.
The Annual Dinner and Silent Auction is a large fundraising event, raising over $25,000 per year thanks to the countless hours of volunteer work put in by our dedicated members. Information on the 2018 Silent Auction will be available soon on the site and will be available at registration. The date of the Silent Auction is October 19, 2018.
Snow Valley Racing hosts a casino once a year, and requires volunteers to staff the two day event. This is Snow Valley Racing biggest single fundraiser and ensures the program costs to families remain at a reasonable rate. The casino supports all programs of Snow Valley Racing, and is an essential pillar of fundraising. This seasons casino will be December 13 and 14, 2018. More information will follow.
