Northwest Ohio’s Figure Skating Team, “Rising Starz”, under the supervision and watchful eye of Shelly Bressler, will be performing at the BGSU Ice Arena in honor of their team taking part in this year’s Premier Figure Skating Event, Skate for Hope. Skate for Hope’s mission is to raise breast cancer education & awareness in young women and girls, to empower them to better cope with a friend or family member diagnosis, honor breast cancer survivors in the community and raise funding for clinical breast cancer research. It is the intention of Skate for Hope to utilize figure skating, a sport that epitomizes women’s strength, to help bring attention, resources, and education to the fight against breast cancer. This year will mark the 10th Anniversary for this national event held in Columbus, Ohio on June 15, 2013 at the Nationwide Arena. We welcome all to come and join us at the BGSU Ice Arena to commemorate this remarkable event! The exhibition will feature fourteen area skaters that make up this year’s Cast for the Skate for Hope Ice Show. There will be a meet and greet starting at 6:00 pm that will include a Raffle of gift baskets. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 a piece or 6 for $5. Although the exhibition is free, donations for Skate for Hope will be accepted at the door.
