The organization provides girls ages 6 to 18 with vital educational and skating opportunities that build self-worth and promote physical well being and academic achievement. For the second year in a row, the CK team worked on a pro bono basis with FSH to help members of the press, event attendees and VIP guests enjoy the event at the Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park.
Despite forecasted rain, the weather held out – and the event was a huge success! Some of the skating stars in attendance included Olympic Medalists Sarah Hughes and Evan Lysacek, as well as celebrity guests including Donald and Melania Trump, Vera Wang and FSH board member and Law & Order SVU actress, Tamara Tunie. The gala raised half a million dollars for FSH’s new academic center. And the girls who benefit from the program gave a skating performance to thank those who attended for their generosity.
The team is already looking forward to Skating with the Stars 2012. And in the meantime we’ll be brushing up on our triple axels!
