Current Fundraisers

Welcome to Jans Winter Welcome 2022!

 

what is jww?

JANS Winter Welcome (JWW) is the premiere fundraising event supporting youth winter sports programs in Park City. Each year, the Youth Sports Alliance raises vital funds to support more than 2,800 kids training with seven YSA-supported competitive winter sport programs and participating in YSA's after-school programs, Get Out & Play and ACTiV8. 400 prominent members of the local community, the snow sports industry, and friends from across the country, mingle, dine and bid on auction items, while raising more than $400,000 to support teams and fund scholarships for junior athletes.

why is it so important?

JWW is by far our biggest and most successful fundraiser of the year and the Figure Skating Club of Park City would not function as well as it does without JWW.  Our fundraising needs to cover essential and non-essential expenses top $37,000 every year and our membership dues only cover a small portion of that expense.  Funds from this event, including our opportunity drawing ticket sales and event tickets, not only help pay for essential fees and general expenses, but also fund a large portion of the Spring Show, subsidize weekly club ice fees, help cover the costs for clinics, competitions and test sessions, help pay for club parties and the annual banquet, send coaches to PSA conference and other learning opportunities. 

YSA gives back to our club 100% of our fundraising earned through Opportunity Drawing Tickets and Auction Donations.  This fundraiser has the potential to cover most of our club expenses and make fundraising the rest of the year a breeze.  However, for this to be successful we need everyone to get involved and do their part.

how can you participate? (and also meet your fundraising requirements)

auction donations

A Silent and Live Auction will take place at the JWW Gala.  The silent auction items will also be available online the week leading up to the event.  Do you have a business contact, friend, or family member that would be willing to donate their business services and/or products? How about a vacation rental or time share? We are looking for as many items as possible with a value of $50 or higher and 1-2 (or more!) high value items with a value of $2500 or higher.  Remember, our club receives 100% of the proceeds from the auction items’ final bids.  Club members will also receive fundraising credits for the final bid price of auction items they secure. These funds are essential to our club’s success!

How to submit a donation:

  1. Fill out an Auction Donation Form

Go to JWW Silent Auction Donation Google Doc (preferred)

Download JWW Silent Auction Donation Form

  1. Once you have secured a donation, please contact Angie Lampert at angeladawnlampert@gmail.com or (913) 219-4780 to arrange for donation drop-off/pick-up and to make sure you receive your fundraising credit for the item.

In addition to collecting silent auction items, we need to sell as many Opportunity Drawing tickets as possible!  Our awesome team has put together some great prizes for the Top 5 sellers!

This year’s grand prize winner will be heading to the beaches of Punta Mita, Mexico!  Winner will enjoy a relaxing vacation in an ocean casita for two at the famed Four Seasons Punta Mita. The trip includes lodging, as well as transportation and resort credit.

Package includes:

  • Three nights for two guests in an Ocean Casita with a view of the ocean and panorama of the beautiful grounds and coastline
  • $2,000 resort credit to use toward dining, spa, or activities (golf, horseback riding, canopy adventure, scuba diving, and more); and
  • $2,000 transportation credit to be used for airline, shuttle or car rental fees.

Travel scheduled for April 10–13, 2023 but will work with winner to select final travel dates. Must make changes to itinerary by December 31, 2022.

Buy 2 or more tickets and you will be entered into a drawing for a complete ski package from JANS that includes skis, bindings, boots and poles of your choice.

JWW ATHLETE ESCORT

There is one opening for a FSCPC athlete to represent our club on stage at the JWW fundraising event, greet arriving guests, and solicit funds from guests. This opportunity is appropriate for skaters age 12-13, who are comfortable interacting with adults and mature enough to serve in this role. To be considered for this great opportunity, please, have your athlete submit a short essay (up to 1 page) about why they should be considered to represent our club. The essay should cover: what you love about our club, why you believe our club is worthy of community support and donations, how you see yourself interacting with guests the evening of the event, and a few examples of how you might approach guests to sell Opportunity Drawing tickets the night of the event. Essays should be emailed to fscpcpresident@gmail.com by September 12th.

Patty Stark Skater Encouragement Fund Scholarship Application

We are very fortunate to have the support of a generous donor who has provided scholarship opportunities for our skaters.

We currently have an open scholarship opportunity for a female skater who identifies as an ethnic minority in an underrepresented group in figure skating. This scholarship is to encourage the dedicated minority female figure skater to continue advancing within USFS, but who may be unable to reach their goals due to financial limitations. This is a need-based scholarship intended to support and encourage underrepresented minority skaters to continue in the sport and help them reach their figure skating goals.

Details:
Scholarship information:

This scholarship consists of $5,000 for one figure skater who is a member of the Figure Skating Club of Park City. The following criteria will be used to guide selection of the skater to receive the scholarship fund:

1. A skater who likely will continue advancing within USFS evidenced by dedicated practice, personal discipline, punctuality at training sessions, having achieved the USFS qualifying level, therefore, eligibility for advancement within USFS competition;
2. Biological female
3. Skater is a member of an ethnic minority group with low representation in figure skating
(e.g., Hispanic, Black, Native American, Subcontinent).
4. Demonstrates financial need to continue in the sport.

Deadline: September 1
