Ski Ball goes virtual
Big Sky Ski Education gets creative
Big Sky Ski Education Foundation (BSSEF) is hosting its Annual Ski Ball fundraiser on Feb. 14 – the nonprofit’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The Ski Ball is going virtual, but the organization has creatively come up with ways for attendees to be engaged while socially distanced.
Live music will be streamed into people’s homes via Zoom and wine and cheese for the wine and cheese tasting can be picked-up at the Hungry Moose in the Meadow on Feb. 13 or 14.
The event will also feature a sommelier presentation and a silent auction.
Thus far, donated items for the auction include everything from skis to home stays on the mountain, backpacks, coffee table books, to helmets and gift cards, according to BSSEF Project Coordinator and Coach Jessie Lepel.
The organization continues to seek business sponsorships as well as donations for the silent auction. Money raised will go toward operating costs for BSSEF, which offers competitive Alpine, Freeride and Nordic skiing programs to kids.
“By raising money to cover operating costs it keeps program registration fees low and ensures that they are accessible to the entire community.
Any additional money we are able to raise will go back into our programs, Freeride, Nordic, and Alpine,” according to a press release. For tickets and more information visit https://one.bidpal. net/2021skiball/welcome
