Arctic Spirits will provide a unique fundraising event on Saturday, February 25 at Buck’s Naked BBQ, 4 Turning Leaf Drive in Windham from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The fundraiser, a first for Arctic Spirits and the Windham area, will be an ice bar event with the proceeds going to Camp Sunshine, located in Casco. Camp Sunshine provides a year-round opportunity for children with life-threatening illnesses to spend a week at the camp. This camp provides respite, recreation and support to children and their families from all over the country at no cost to them.
Emily Wainwright, one of the founders of Arctic Spirits, stated that they began raising funds for Camp Sunshine about two years ago. The first fundraiser was a wine and beer tasting event and it has slowly morphed into the Ice Bar event.
Light appetizers and all types of beverages will be served, along with entertainment by DJ Nate Hicks, a raffle and silent auction inside! Arctic Spirits is one of the only ice bar events in the Sebago Lakes Region.
