It's Jans Winter Welcome time!

Our biggest club fundraiser, Jans Winter Welcome, is approaching quickly.  Please read the following so you understand how Jans Winter Welcome pertains to our club and your skater.

What is Jans Winter Welcome?

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 2,600 kids participating in the seven YSA-supported competitive winter sports programs and YSA's after-school programs, Get Out & Play and ACTiV8. 400 of the most 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.

How does Jans Winter Welcome benefit our club and our skaters?

Last year, our club raised $41,000 through Jans Winter Welcome.  We require $37,000 in fundraising dollars to cover club expenses each year.  With the extra $4,000 we raised, we are able to offer subsidized classes to skaters during club ice and purchase much needed equipment for our coaches.  We also had multiple skaters receive Jans Winter Welcome scholarship funds allowing these skaters to participate competitively in their sport.

What is our club's Jans Winter Welcome participation policy?

In order to participate in our club's annual Spring Show and qualify for Skater Recognition, each FSCPC full and associate club member must sell 2 Jans Winter Welcome opportunity tickets each year.  Families with multiple skaters must sell 2 tickets for each skater.  DEVO skaters are encouraged but not required to participate. Any full or associate club skater that sells 10 or more tickets will get their spring show fee of $100 waived.  Any DEVO skater that sells 3 or more tickets will get their spring show costume fee waived (DEVO skaters don’t have a show fee). These skaters will also be eligible to enter club raffle drawings to receive gift cards and swag.  The deadline to sell tickets is Friday, October 26th.

What is the Jans Winter Welcome opportunity prize this year?

This year's opportunity raffle ticket buys a chance to win a VIP trip for 2 to the 2019 Tour de France from the Alps to Paris from July 22-29, 2019.  Each raffle ticket costs $50.

How do skaters sell opportunity raffle tickets?

The simplest way to sell opportunity raffle tickets is online.  This link allows friends and family to purchase as many opportunity tickets as desired.  https://ywsa.ejoinme.org/JWWOpportunityDrawing  It is very important that they give credit to Figure Skating Club of Park City and your skater during checkout.  If you prefer paper tickets, they are available as well. Please contact Randi Jo Taurel (randijotaurel@gmail.com) if you would like paper tickets to sell.

If you have any questions, please contact Kate Moynihan (kbmoynihan70@yahoo.com).
