The Katy’s Courage winter events, including the 11th annual Katy’s Courage Skate-a-Thon and Bake Sale, and the Love Bites tasting event are back in East Hampton!
Donating all proceeds to Katy’s Courage, both benefits raise vital funds for this local nonprofit which supports education and families and children with pediatric cancer research, scholarships, and children’s bereavement care in memory of Katy Stewart, a Sag Harbor girl who succumbed to a rare pediatric cancer in 2011, at the young age of 12 years old.
KATY’S COURAGE SKATE-A-THON
The 11th annual Katy’s Courage Skate-a-Thon and Bake Sale kicks off at 12:15 p.m. next Saturday, February 25 at Buckskill Winter Club (178 Buckskill Road) in East Hampton, and there’s lots to do and enjoy throughout the day.
Participants can take part in kids and adult hockey games (pre-registration required), skating lessons — including basic skills and learning with Snowplow Sam for youngsters — open public skating time, and a puck throw contest, or watch an exciting ice show.
Everyone in attendance can stop by the annual bake sale for treats and partake in a raffle drawing.
