Join us on Tuesday, March 6th anytime from 5:00pm until 11:00pm at SMASH at Exdo Event Center for a post-season ping-pong party to benefit the Chill Foundation's Denver Program. The Bash will be the culmination of this online fundraising campaign and we are accepting donations of any amount. If you are in the area, a minimum $10 donation will earn you entry to the Bash, unlimited ping-pong, and the option to register in the Chill Pong Tournament! There will be plenty of fun, games, ping-pong, and sweatbands (as Smash's website says) to be had for all! Burton Snowboards and the Chill Foundation will be supplying a grand prize to the winning tourney players as well as many other door prizes for Bash attendees. You do not want to miss out! Doors at 5:00pm, tournament starts at 7:30pm. All proceeds from this page and the Bash will go directly to the Denver Chill Program, allowing us to increase programming and the number of local youth we are able to reach. We are hoping to turn Denver Chill into a fully self-sustainable entity, increase our winter program nights, and even begin year-round programming to include a skate program and other opportunities for the youth we serve to build their skill sets.
The mission of the Chill Foundation is to provide opportunities for underserved and at-risk youth to build self-esteem and life skills through snowboarding. The Denver Chill Program is currently serving over 70 youth aged 10-18 from 9 different youth agencies in the greater-Denver area including low-income schools, residential treatment centers, groups homes, and a children's law center. We facilitate a life skills curriculum covering the themes patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride, as well as weekly snowboarding lessons at our host site, Echo Mountain.
Please join our cause and show your support for our efforts of expanding our Denver programming. Again, a minimum donation of $10 gets you into the Smash Bash fun, but please feel free to give above and beyond, or to donate to this page even if you are unable to attend the Bash. Our goals are high and we rely on the support of our local community. Thank you for your generosity and we hope to see you at the Bash!
Simply contribute to one of the fundraisers or teams above, or create your own fundraising page to reach out to your contacts by clicking "Join Now."
