Get Stoked, Bro!

Harbor Spring Ski Team Fundraiser
By Lynda Wheatley | Nov. 27, 2021

For those who’ve already had it up to here with tree lightings, hot cocoa, candy canes, and community sing-alongs, the Harbor Springs school ski team is hosting a radical alternative: a movie and pizza night that starts at 5pm Friday, Dec. 3, at the Boyne Highlands Day Lodge Cafeteria.

Dinner — all-you-can-eat pizza, salad, cookies, lemonade, and iced tea (or soda for $1, with a cash bar for adults) — is just the beginning. A quick and cool live auction follows, and then comes the main insane event, a screening of the film Stoke the Fire, a documentary that follows some of the “world’s gnarliest athletes” (three of whom also bear the titles “male fitness model,” “retired burning man veteran,” and “tiny dog mom”) as they climb up and ski, soar, flip, and crash down mountains in pursuit of the pure joy that manifests itself through their evolution as skiers.

Tickets, $15, are available at the door, from ski team members, and at Kelbel Pharmacy in Harbor Springs.
