Katy’s Courage Event Feb. 10

The Buckskill Winter Club, as it has in the past few years, will play host to a Katy’s Courage fund-raiser on Sunday, Feb. 10, with proceeds to go to the foundation created by Jim and Brigid Collins Stewart in memory of their daughter, who died of a rare pediatric cancer eight years ago at the age of 12.

According to a flier, Katy’s Courage is “dedicated to education, research, and support for Katy’s Kids at the Children’s Museum of the East End, a center for grieving children, teens, and their families. . . . Katy’s Courage is a not-for-profit organization honoring Katy Stewart, a precious little girl who inspired all who knew her throughout her lifetime. Her smile and kindness shine on in the memories of those who loved her, and her courage motivated the creation of this organization.”

The day (the rain date is Feb. 17) is to begin at 12:15 with learn-to-skate classes, followed by public skating from 1:15 to 2:45, a Katy’s Courage puck throw contest from 3 to 3:15, a skating recital from 3:30 to 4:30, a skate-a-thon from 4:45 to 5:45, a raffle drawing at 6, and a hockey game from 6 to 7:30. 

There will be an all-day bake sale, as well, put on by friends of Katy Stewart. 

Preregistration is required for the puck throw contest and for the 10-and-up hockey game, open to “the first 50 people to sign up (including goalies).”
