Skating for donations

Posted:

Dozens of skaters hit the ice in Burlington Saturday to entertain hundreds and benefit those in need.

The Champlain Valley Skating Club and Burlington Parks and Recreation teamed up to present "The Gift" Saturday afternoon at Leddy Park.

It's the second annual holiday ice show, which this year, benefits the Vermont Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network.

Parks and Rec. Director Jesse Bridges says it's a great show with an even better purpose.

"This is one of the beautiful things of the job. I've got my little girl with me today, four-and-a-half, and she's all excited to watch the skaters. So, it's a beautiful thing to be a resident of Burlington and be able to be a part of this," Bridges said.

The show featured more than 30 performances.

Last year, the event raised about one-thousand dollars for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
