On Sunday, March 6th, bundle up and spend the end of the weekend gliding through the Hamptons during Katy’s Courage’s fifth annual Skate-A-Thon at Buckskill Winter Club.
“An event we look forward to every year is here again, the Katy’s Courage Skate-A-Thon hosted by Buckskill Winter Club,” shared Brigid Collins, founder of Katy’s Courage. “It’s a day that is great fun, with varied family skating events for all levels and a wonderful bake sale.”
The event, which begins at 1:15 p.m., features several winter outdoor favorites and after burning off a few calories in the rink, reward yourself with something sweet from Katy’s Courage’s bake sale or take a chance on the raffle.
“We appreciate all the hard work put in by the DeGroot family, and club manager Cory Lillie to make the day a success, and we look forward to seeing our friends there,” added Collins.
The Skate-A-Thon kicks off with a public skate from 1:15 to 2:45 p.m., followed by a puck throw from 3 to 3:10 p.m. A figure skating recital by coaches and participating kids is next at 3:15 p.m. The Skate-A-Thon skaters take the ice from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. and a public skating will be held again from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. The big raffle drawings and winner announcements take place at 6:15 p.m. and the event culminates with a hockey game from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit Katy’s Courage, who is dedicated to nurturing compassion, joy and well-being through its “pass it on” mission. The not-for-profit is committed to supporting scholarships for local students, raising funds for pediatric cancer research and Katy’s Kids @ CMEE, a Children’s Museum of the East End program that offers play and expressive support opportunities for children and adolescents.
Buckskill Winter Club is located at 178 Buckskill Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit katyscourage.org.
