This past weekend, we teamed up with the Bozeman Amateur Hockey Association to host Rendez-Vous at the Rink - a free public skate event to kick-off the start of the 2016-2017 season. More than 200 people joined us on the ice for some good ol' family fun and it was a blast! We plan on hosting another one to celebrate the opening of Ressler Motors Ice Rink in January, so stay tuned!
Planning for the 7th annual Gloves Off Gala (set for March 25, 2017) is in full swing. This year, our Planning Committee will be augmented with a group of volunteers from Leadership Bozeman. These leaders from our local business community will be assisting with various tasks including hanging posters, procuring auction items and assisting with event set up. We are always looking for more smiling faces and helping hands, so if you would like to get involved - please give me a call.
Other than that, we've got a busy fall. Fundraising remains our top priority and we will be announcing several new initiatives and events over the next few weeks. As always, 100% of donations to the Gallatin Ice Foundation go towards helping us achieve our mission of expanding refrigerated ice facilities for the health and wellness of our community. If you'd like to learn more about the GIF's efforts and how you can play a critical role in our success, please contact me or any one of the GIF Board Member's.
See you at the rink!
