On Sunday April 3rd, 2011, the Glacier Falls Figure Skating Club, Inc., in partnership with the Citizens Business Bank Arena of Ontario, California, will host an afternoon of figure skating to benefit Japan tsunami relief efforts. This event will feature competitors from around the United States, including many who train in Southern California. The event is "Skaters Care: A Benefit for Japan Tsunami Relief."

The nexus of this event comes from skating competitors expressing their desire to reach out and help the people of Japan in the way they best know how -- by performing on the ice. On one magic afternoon, they will pour their hearts out on the ice in support of a nation in need.

Because of the short time frame in putting this event together, performer commitments are still in progress; however "Skaters Care" plans to bring together some of the best competitors in all disciplines of figure skating. For more information, check out the site www.skaterscare.com for an updated list of performers.

All ticket and merchandise proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross earmarked for Japan Tsunami Relief.

Come be a part of this special event! Tickets prices are $35, $25 and $15. Additionally, a $5 discount per ticket is available for children under 12. Tickets may be purchased at www.Ticketmaster.com (a convenience fee will apply) or at the Citizens Business Bank Arena box office, go to www.cbbankarena.com

For more information regarding the event contact Don Rabbitt at 714-348-5689 or donald.rabbitt@gmail.com

Maybe..I won't admit to it...but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.:shuffle:

Regardless, Sean seems to be doing his best to promote it on twitter :)

It was really sweet to see Sean translating info right after the quake, and it's great to see Glacier making this tangible effort to help.

Actually, yes he is. He (and his brother Brandon) make me proud every day.
