Skate-a-thon benefits four-footed friends

“Cold Nose, warm heart,” a skate-a-thon benefit for Tahoe’s orphan animals, will take place Dec. 15 at the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. and laps will be skated from 2 to 5 p.m. Participants can enjoy a fun and healthy skate party all afternoon.

Skaters can sponsor themselves or get others to sponsor them and help Tahoe’s animals in need. Minimum sponsorship is $25 and the event includes skate rental, ice time and a raffle tickets. Participants who wear whiskers and/or a tail also will get an event T-shirt.

Special prizes will be awarded for most laps skated and most sponsor money collected. Prizes include Sierra-at-Tahoe lift passes; Tahoe Bowl pass; and gift certificates from Great Outdoors Clothing Co., Cutting Edge Sports and Tahoe Hockey Jerseys.

100 percent of the proceeds help local Tahoe pets who are abandoned, who need medical care, food, shelter and spay or neuter and placement in responsible homes. There is no national organization or government agencies to help. Tahoe’s animals depend on Tahoe people. Can they count on you?

Sponsorships are tax deductible. For more information call Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. at (530) 577-4521. The society is celebrating 35 years of service and is 100 percent donation supported.
