BROOKINGS – Brookings Figure Skating Club skaters will be hosting their popular Krispy Kreme fundraiser on Saturday September 11 in Brookings. Donuts will be prepared early that morning in Omaha and shipped to Brookings for pickup, starting at 8:30 am.
The original Krispy Kreme frozen donuts will sell for $ 12 per dozen. Until September 6, orders can be placed in advance with any member of the figure skating club or online at www.bit.ly/KrispyKreme2021. Pre-orders can be picked up at the Brookings Radio Station parking lot from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on September 11.
A limited amount of same-day donut sales will be available while supplies last at the radio station, as well as at the Back In Motion Chiropractic parking lot, just west of McDonald’s on Sixth Street. Same-day sales hours are 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. or until all the donuts are gone.
The club offers free city deliveries to anyone who buys donuts to honor or thank someone else.
“We started our Heroes program last year during the pandemic, and we loved seeing all the people who wanted to thank the staff in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living centers, as well as teachers and coaches, ”said mom skater Trish Matson Buus. “What a great way to give twice – once to support the skating club and once to thank someone who deserves it with a surprise. “
To thank a hero with donuts, just pre-order and contact your favorite club member to let them know your wishes.
“This is a very important fundraiser for our small club, and it helps us raise a substantial portion of our annual operating budget, and we are very grateful for the support from the community,” said Chris Cass , president of the Brookings Figure Skating Club. “Every year we all sell, even as we increase the quantities, so we really encourage ordering in advance to secure your donuts before they run out.”
The Krispy Kreme Fundraising Program was established in 1955 to allow eligible community organizations to raise funds for their good causes. According to the Krispy Kreme fundraising website, this helped organizations raise around $ 37 million last year alone to support charitable initiatives.
The Brookings Figure Skating Club is dedicated to the promotion of amateur figure skating, providing continuing education and training opportunities to its members and instilling good sportsmanship. The club offers an à la carte approach to recreational and competitive programming to help encourage each skater to achieve their own goals in a safe and healthy environment.
