Ice Bucket XII Fundraising

With just over a week and a half until the Ice Bucket XII it’s time to bring in donations!

Every year we set a higher goal, last year we raised $14000, this year we are trying for $15000.

We can only make our goal if you, all of you, help.

Whether it’s $10, $20, $100 or $1000 every dollar gets us closer to our goal. If 72 disc golfers each get 21 people to donate $10 we will hit our goal.  So lets keep our 2nd place status and crush our $15000 goal!

CASH DONATIONS: This is the main focus of the Ice Bucket, as all the money we raise for the event goes directly to Vermont Food Shelves to help them get food to the folks who need it. For those of you who may not know about “Ice Bowls”, they are a collection of disc golf events that are held each year in January and February with an overall mission of raising funds to fight hunger. Related goals include having fun and connecting the disc golf community in a positive way to the community at large. In 2017 we had over 10,000 disc golfers participate in Ice Bowls and raise over $300,000, which pushes the charitable total raised by Ice Bowls since 1996 to over $3.51 million. All of this money was given to local organizations dedicated to fighting hunger. Here in Vermont, our GMDGC Ice Bowl, came in 2nd Place for “Money Raised” out of over 200 events nationwide. We raised $14,100!!! This was our 4th straight Top 3 finish in “Most Money Raised” and we now have back to back 2nd place finishes!! To date, the GMDGC Ice Bowl has raised close to $80,000 in 11 years!! Every year we push our goal further and so for 2018 we will attempt to raise $15,000 to help feed those who need a hand. You will find a donation link on our homepage. Please ask your friends and family to help us reach our goal. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL.

All cash donations will go directly to the food shelves we support!
