“Everything went really well and people had a great time,” Emily Wainwright, one of the organizers, stated. “We are definitely aiming for a second annual Ice Bar fundraising event, tentatively scheduled for February 24, 2018 and we are obviously hoping for better weather.”
Those who sponsored the event included: Windham Indoor Shooting Range, Gorham Savings, Mechanics Savings, Hicks Productions, Metayer Family Eye Care, Milliken, Perkins & Brunelle and Buck’s Naked BBQ. “They all were wonderful,” Wainwright said of the sponsors. “As were all the amazing places that donated raffle and auction items to make it such a success.”
