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.
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.
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!

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 email@example.com by September 13th.
