A Surrey-based synchronized skating team is set to host its annual Christmas fundraiser – with money raised going to help local families in need during the holiday season.
The Pacific Ice Synchronized Skating Club will host its 12th annual Christmas Gala Saturday, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. at South Surrrey Arena (2199 148 St.).
The event will feature 17 skating teams – of varying ages – from throughout the Lower Mainland. In addition to showcasing skating talent, the event is also a fundraiser for the Surrey Food Bank. All attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item as admission.
Over the past four years, the event has collected more than 4,000 pounds of food and $1,300 in cash donations.
