The 10th annual Karl’s Kids ski-day fundraiser will be held Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4 at Sugarloaf in Carrabassett Valley. The event kicks off on March 3 at 6 p.m. at The SugarBowl restaurant and game center for a family evening of food, games, and fun. A portion of the proceeds from that evening will benefit Karl’s Kids.
The following morning, March 4, the slopes will become a winter wonderland of activities. There will be a full day of skiing, including a fun race on the Boardwalk race course from 2-3:30 p.m. A $5 donation to Karl’s Kids will provide two runs for a chance to win prizes for fastest run, slowest run, and craziest-dressed skier.
A silent auction will be available the entire day on March 4 at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel followed by the closing reception, which will take place from 4:30-6 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, announcement of the race winners, and closing remarks.
Full-day discounted lift tickets are available through Karl’s Kids by contacting Mary Berger at 529-2093.
