The 39th Annual 50+ Winter Games will be held on February 10, 11 and 12, 2019.
Fund raising will begin in August, 2018. It’s fun and satisfying to raise funds for the Summit County Senior nutrition programs. We contact local businesses to collect money as well as items for the Silent Auction. If you’re interested, check with the Senior Center, or contact Cathy Sapp at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers to help with the dinner, silent auction, Alpine events and Nordic events will also be needed.
You can participate in all the games for the low registration fee of $35.00. And you can also attend the dinner for another $20.00.
