It’s Banff Film Festival Time in TC!
For the 5th straight year, The Vasa Ski Club is proudly hosting the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour – TC on Wednesday, April 5, 6:00 at the State Theatre in downtown TC. This event has served as a major fundraiser for our kids’ programs, such as the Middle School and the ski rental programs. Our latest gig, “Nordic Rocks,” is the major target for this year’s Banff Film Fest proceeds. This program aims to provide skis to all grade schools in the TC area, as well as training and mentoring for PE teachers so that they can introduce kids to the excitement of cross country skiing.
No Tickets? Try the Standby Line!
This year, the Film Fest has sold out faster than any other year, indicating the growing popularity of this event. For those of you who missed out on getting tickets, have no fear! The stand-by line has always been able to accommodate those without tickets.
Online Ticket Pick-up
Those purchasing tickets online can pick them up at the State Theatre starting at 4:30 pm the day of the Fest. Go to the VSC table in the entryway, NOT the theatre box office.
The Franklin Restaurant, one of our sponsors and host of the Afterglow Party, has agreed to offer all Banffers a special menu at super bargain prices just for us! Please consider dining there for your pre-fest repast. Make sure you thank them for being a part of the Film Fest!
Speaking of Nordic Rocks…
One of our generous longtime members, Sara Cockrell, has offered a matching grant program to boost the program’s fundraising needs. She will match donations from others up to $5000. Information on how to contribute will be available at the Film Fest. BUT! If you have your checkbook ready now, feel free to donate beforehand. Make your check out to the Vasa Ski Club, writing in the memo “Nordic Rocks.” Mail your check to Bud Huber, VSC Treasurer, 3954 Arlington Dr., Williamsburg, MI 49690. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so it’s tax deductible. The kids and we THANK YOU!
Sponsor Thank Yous!
Lastly, we want to again acknowledge our generous sponsors who keep ticket prices low and help us raise funds for the kids. Many are VSC members! Please patronize their businesses and thank them!
