WinterKids Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Portland, ME -

FALMOUTH -  WinterKids proudly celebrates 10 Years of Winter Fun at The Woodlands Club in Falmouth from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 30th. Maine’s Wicked Funny Bob Marley and Maine’s Funniest Mom, Karen Morgan, will provide the laughs for the evening and two-time Gold Medalist (and WinterKids spokesperson) Seth Wescott will make a special appearance! Advance tickets may be available for $50 per person at 871-5700, ext 103. As there is limited seating, no tickets will be available at the door.

The fundraising event kicks off WinterKids’ fiscal year, and will bring together WinterKids’ sponsors, community supporters, friends, volunteers, donors, staff and board of directors. In addition to great comedy from Bob Marley and Karen Morgan, guests will be treated to a special video presentation and a winter-themed silent auction. The fabulous auction items include a chance to snowboard with Seth Wescott himself and an “all access” weekend getaway to Saddleback during the 2010-2011 winter season.

WinterKids began as part of Ski Maine Association with one program for 5th graders. It became an independent nonprofit organization in 2000, and its programs today—including the WinterKids Passport and the WinterKids FunPass—now serve children in preschool through middle school.

WinterKids would like to thank the 10 Year Celebration’s Host Committee for making the event possible: Severin and Cynthia Beliveau; Bill and Irene Berry; Meredith Strang Burgess and Doug Stewart; Steve Campbell; Fred and Judy Forsley; Denise and Scott Karkos; Eric and Dani Kolben; George and Virginia Kiesewetter; Jack and Jane Manheimer; Jay and Christine Mullen; Bob and Susan Peixotto; Doug and Lauren Sanford; Rory and Linda Strunk; Greg Sweetser and Debby Freeman; and, Larry Wold.

WinterKids’ 2009-2010 sponsors include Hannaford Supermarkets, Healthy Maine Partnerships, TD Bank and Time Warner Cable. For more information about WinterKids, visit www.winterkids.org.
