Fundraising Activities

 

The Cochrane Skating Club is a non-profit organization.  In order to help keep the costs of programs as low as possible for all families, the club conducts various fundraising activities in a given year. 

The club requires a fundraising bond of $200 per STARSkate skater for the season to be paid upon registration at the beginning of a season.  This bond does not apply to Advanced CanSkate however these members are encouraged to support the club's fundraising through active participation in fundraising activities. 

The fundraising activities for the 2019-2020 season will be announced at the parent meeting September 10, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. (Cochrane Arena upstairs). All STARSkate members are asked to attend this mandatory meeting.  All members in attendance receive 1/2 hour of time toward your volunteer commitments for the season for attending this meeting. 

Skaters who raise more than the $200 bond will receive the additional funds into their skater accounts which can be used toward future program registrations, test day fees or other open invoice amounts throughout the season.

2019 Casino

Casinos are an essential fundraiser for our club and without these funds the club would not be able to operate. The club participates in a casino approximately every three years and the money received from the casino is split into thirds and used as revenue for the following three years.  

The club is participating in a casino on October 16 and 17, 2019. Volunteers are needed for casino shifts.   Please contact Hilary at casino@cochraneskatingclub.ca  to volunteer.
