Chill Fundraiser


Editorial Review

The founders of Burton Snowboards created a charity called Chill in 1995 to introduce snowboarding (and the great outdoors) to kids from foster homes and group houses, those with drug problems and who'd been in trouble with the law. It was also designed to give them some positive adult role models and get them out of their usual environment. More than 14,000 young people have gotten gear, lessons and lift tickets from the charity over the years. If you'd like to support the cause, there's a Chill fundraiser at Science Club tonight -- and you could even walk away with a complete Burton setup if you win the raffle. Doors open at 8, and drink specials will be offered all night. Ill Element provides the music. Admission is $12 in advance from Chill's Web site (link above) or $15 at the door; all proceeds go to charity.
