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 encourage each family to take part in the Grocery Program and the annual Bike-a-Thon. In addition, each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 2 shifts at the organizations fundraising or social events. These events include the Ski Swap (Oct 21-22, 2023), Casino (Oct 18-19 2023), Silent Auction (Oct 14, 2023) and the Spring BBQ (April 2022), additional events throughout the season will be added.
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. 8% of the monthly grocery card purchase goes directly to SVR.
Snow Valley Racing works a Casino once every two years, and requires volunteers to staff the two day event. This is Snow Valley Racing's 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. The club most recently hosted a Casino event in Fall of 2021, our next event is Oct 18-19 2023.
The annual Snow Valley Ski Club Ski and Snowboard Swap will take place October 21-22, 2023. This is a great opportunity to sell some of your used equipment from last season and to get ready for the upcoming season. Second only to Casino events, the Ski Swap is a primary annual fundraising event for the club. Stay tuned for information on volunteering!
