Volunteer and Donation opportunities at 2018 Adult Sectionals!

Call for volunteers!

We are hosting Pacific Coast Adult Sectionals next weekend (March 9 to March 11, 2018) and we need your help! This is a great opportunity to fulfill your Club service hours and to show our adult skaters the generosity that they show during the rest of the season.

If you’re not a Club member, we would still appreciate your help. We can’t do this without everyone’s support. If you or your friends and family are able to volunteer some time during the competition, we would be so grateful.

If you’re not able to volunteer, we are also requesting donations for our hospitality.

Please go to this link to let us know when you can volunteer or which items you can donate. And please help us get the word out. Thanks so much! #AdultsSkateToo

Heartfelt thanks from the PFSC Jr. Board to everyone who either attended, supported and/or contributed to our Winter Fundraiser Party recently. Not only was it a festive evening filled with camaraderie, laughter, games and great food but thanks to your invaluable support through ticket sales, donations and silent auction bidding, we raised enough to provide a stipend of $802 to each of our members Elizabeth Hong (Juvenile Ladies), Henry Privett-Mendoza (Novice Men) and Mirai Nagusu (Senior Ladies) to offset the costs either they or their families incurred to compete at the 2018 U.S. Figure Skating Championships recently. Congratulations to Elizabeth, Henry and Mirai for their amazing accomplishments at Nationals:

Elizabeth Hong: Juvenile Ladies, 7th place

Henry Privett-Mendoza: Novice Men, 9th place

The Pasadena Figure Skating Club is so proud of each of you!!! And we wish Mirai Nagasu the best of luck at the upcoming 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang.
