Chester Bowl Skis, Suds, & Slices Fundraiser Happening This Week

The Virtual Auction Begins Wednesday, Nov. 10

DULUTH, Minn. – Chester Bowl is proud to present its annual Skis, Suds, & Slices fundraiser beginning Wednesday, Nov. 10, and wrapping up Friday, Nov. 12 at 8:30 p.m.

“At Chester Bowl, we believe that every family should be able to learn to ski or snowboard and attend summer camp regardless of their family income,” said Dave Schaeffer, executive director of Chester Bowl. “That’s why we offer full or partial scholarships to any family that requests one. Last winter we awarded $27,000 in winter scholarship to 114 families, and we award an average of $8,000 in summer camp scholarships – that is 250 days of camp.”

Donate: First, you can simply make a donation. All donations are tax-deductible, and every dollar you donate will go directly towards scholarships. You can donate online at this link. You can also send a check to Chester Bowl, 1801 East Skyline Parkway, Duluth MN 55812.

Silent Auction: You can also bid on silent auction items. Items will be posted to preview on Tuesday, Nov. 9, although there are a few Chester-specific items up now. The auction will be open for bids starting Wednesday, Nov. 10, through 8:30 pm on Friday, Nov. 12.

Raffle Tickets: Each $10 raffle ticket gives you a chance at incredible prizes- two sets of a pizza a month for a year from Toppers Pizza, a growler a month for a year from Bent Paddle plus a $75 gift card from the Duluth Grill family of restaurants, a pizza a month for a year from Vitta Pizza, and a large ice cream cone a month for a year from Love Creamery. Raffle tickets must be purchased in person. We will sell raffle tickets during our ski and snowboard fitting nights, so you can stop by the Chalet to purchase them then! Fitting times are 5:30-9:00 on 10/27, 10/28, 11/1, 11/2, 11/3, 11/4, 11/8, 11/9, 11/10, and 11/11.

Free Online Event:  Finally, although we can’t party in person, we are still having a party! We are hosting a free Zoom event from 7-8pm on Friday, November 12.  You can expect to learn about Chester programs and hear how scholarships have impacted families in our community, participate in Chester Bowl trivia, vote for the Twin Ports Best Pizza, witness the live raffle drawing, and more.
