GILFORD, New Hampshire — Gunstock Adaptive will hold its annual one day fundraising event. On Sat March 12, 2010, Ski Teams will gather at Gunstock Mountain Resort. They come in costumes for a day of fun, and to support the non-profit adaptive program Gunstock Adaptive.

Gunstock Adaptive is a non-profit organization providing quality on snow activities at Gunstock Mountain resort in Gilford N.H. People with special needs come from all over New England and beyond to enjoy a day on the snow. The program provides disabled people equipment and instruction of skiing, snowboarding, and other winter activities.

Once a year, we hold a one day fundraising event called Party on the Snow. In truth, we prepare for this day all year. Teams of people gather donations from friends, families, and businesses in support of the program. Last year we had 20 Teams with a goal to gather 10 thousand dollars. We nearly doubled that figure.

Why do we need this event? We use the donations to increase the quality of the program. Monies are used to buy new equipment or rehab the old. We give scholarships to our students in need of help. And we continuously look to advance our instructors skills through training programs.

When our Teams come to the Party on The Snow, they have a full day of fun scheduled. There are gifts for just showing up as a participant! Party on The Snow provides for Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner. Team members ski and ride Gunstock Mountain from 8:30 am to 10 pm at night! There is a NASTAR course to have fun with. Tubing is on a lift serviced set of trails is included for Party participants as well. We have a awards ceremony where we acknowledge benchmark winners with big prizes donated for the occasion. After the awards ceremony, a Rock and Roll band plays for hours of dancing.

Sounds good doesn’t it. Come join us on Saturday March 13th 2010 and experience it yourself. We are proud of the people that are involved with the program, and we want to give back to the community. This year we’ve set a goal to receive 25K in donations. Come and join us as a Team Captain for our Party on The Snow and help the program give a quality experience to those who use it.
