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 “Charity Ice Bowl“, they are a collection of disc golf events held around the world 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 2018 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 $3.61 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 $13,187!!! This was our 5th straight Top 3 finish in “Most Money Raised” and we now have three 2nd place finishes in a row! To date, the GMDGC Ice Bowl has raised close to $94,000 in 12 years!! Every year we push our goal further and so for 2019 we will attempt to raise $15,000 to help feed those who need a hand. 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!
