The Rossland Rotary is holding a Ski Bum Ball on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 8 p.m. at the Miners’ Hall.

The Rotary is holding the ball since it won’t be holding its Winefest again this year and wants to do something fun in the Miners’ Hall before it shuts down in February.

“The Rossland Rotary has typically supported the renovations and stuff in the Miners’ Hall and so it’s good to use it, and we’re going to continue to support it,” says Cheryl Darrah, Rotary secretary.

Live music for the ball will be provided by the Foggy Goggle Boys.

“That’s the best part,” says Darrah. “They play a good tune; they’re really fun.”

Dress for the event in “your finest seasonal attire.”

“Rosslanders and the ski bums are known for wanting to show off their ski bum clothing, so like you can wear a onesie with a tutu or you could wear your lumberjack shirt, or you could wear a toque and ski pants,” says Darrah.

The Rotary’s raffle ticket prizes will be on display and it will be a final chance to take a look and get tickets before they draw for the Rocky Mountain Blizzard Fat Tire Bike on Monday, Dec. 14. Tickets are $20 each and only 750 will be sold.

Tickets to the ball are $15 and can be purchased at the Alpine Grind or Powder Hound.
