Skating Families in Santa Rosa Need Our Help!

More than a dozen deadly wildfires are burning across California, which have forced many Santa Rosa Figure Skating Club families to leave their homes with little notice.
The fires have already scorched thousands of acres and forced thousands of people to evacuate. Well over 30,000 people have been ordered to evacuate and as many as 2,834 homes in Santa Rosa were consumed by the fires so far. In Napa County, the Tubbs and Atlas Fires are burning out of control. Several hospitals have been evacuated, thousands are without power and schools are closed. Fire officials report that as much as 400,000 square feet of commercial space in Santa Rosa alone is destroyed.

The exceptionally dry weather and high winds in California could spark additional fires, and the existing fires may spread rapidly and unpredictably. Firefighters were battling blazes in Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Yuba, Nevada, Calaveras and Butte counties.


You can help skating families affected by these wildfires by making a donation to Santa Rosa Go Fund Me at https://www.gofundme.com/santa-rosa-figure-skating-club . Your gift enables skating families who belong to Santa Rosa Figure Skating Club, recover from this disaster directly. Please consider a gift of $10 or more to help our skating friends in this time of disaster.

The Vice President works with the Co-Presidents to plan events. They communicate with and manage all the other members of the council. The Vice President assumes the role of the Co-President should either President be absent or step down before the next election cycle.

The secretary documents meetings and provides an emailed copy of every meeting to all members of the junior council including supervisors. They work with the Director of Public Relations to write emails to club members + community.

The treasurer creates the council’s budget. They also manage sales and finance during fundraising events.
