Beards on Ice | Shelter from the Storm
Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm
In its first year, Beards on Ice: Skating for Shelter raised $11,000! Thank you to the many many generous donors who opened their hearts and wallets to help reduce domestic violence. I received many requests for a repeat, and I am proud to announce the return of what has been dubbed the “most incredible ice experience ever”. This year's goal is $15,000!
With an expanded list of venues, even more people will be able to participate this year and we can have an even greater positive impact!
