High Gravity Games a huge success


On behalf of all of us at the Alaskan Brewing Co., we would like to thank everyone who attended, participated and supported this year’s High Gravity Games at Eaglecrest on March 6. We were so happy you joined us in celebrating our 25th anniversary as a local Juneau business and in supporting the invaluable work of our 2011 selected nonprofit, Hospice and Home Care of Juneau. With your help, we were able to raise more than $2,700 for Hospice and Home Care in one very fun afternoon. We could not have done it without the help of so many wonderful local sponsors, including Alaska Canopy Tours, Alaska Litho, Alaska Outdoor Warehouse, Alaska Zipline Adventures, Andy Kline and KXLL, Coastal Helicopters, Cycle Alaska, DIPAC, Era Helicopters, The Great Alaska Bluegrass Band, Jerry’s Meats, Juneau Jeep Adventures, Juneau Radio Center, Land Locally, Marlintini’s Lounge, Northstar Trekking, Pearson’s Pond, Perseverance Theatre, Rachael Juzeler, TEMSCO, TP Alaska Designs, Juneau Travelodge and Wings of Alaska/Taku Lodge. We would also especially like to thank all of our enthusiastic event participants and — of course — everyone Eaglecrest Ski Area. Cheers!

On behalf of Capital City Rotaract and ShelterBox, we would like to say thank you to the community of Juneau for your overwhelming support at Rotaract’s 2nd annual Chili Cook-off.

We are excited to announce that we raised $3,000 and an additional $2,000 after the event, to send to ShelterBox, an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide.

A big thank you to our sponsors! The Red Dog Saloon, Wings Airways, Taku Lodge, Hangar on the Wharf, Juneau Radio Center and The Rookery. We would also like to thank our local chili celebrity judges: Andy Kline, Brian Long, Chef Stef, Sharon Burns and Mayor Bruce Botelho.

JDHS hockey thanks supporters

On behalf of the Juneau-Douglas High School hockey team, the Blue Line Club thanks all of the businesses, individuals and the City and Borough of Juneau, whose financial support helped make 2010-2011 a successful season. The generosity of our community is astounding. We also would like to thank all of the dedicated fans who came out to the Treadwell Arena to cheer on the Crimson Bears throughout the season, and of course, Greg Smith and the outstanding Treadwell Arena staff. We could not have done it without you.

Thank you again for your continued support.

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council has so many people to thank for all of their support in the past year. In particular, we’d like to thank Mike Barnhill and Fire on McGinnis, who organized the Celtic Music Festival on Jan. 28 as a special fundraising event to benefit the Juneau Arts & Culture Center. Fire on McGinnis, along with Chuck Tripp, the City of Juneau Pipe Band, The New Family, the Kari Groven Band, Full Circle Music Band, Laurie Gardner, Scottish Highland Dancers, Mark Alton, Betsy Sims, Abby’s Kitchen, Chef Stef’s, Naill Jazz, The Hangar/Odom Distributors, Missouri Smyth and the Alaska Youth Choir, Vickii Allison and Jim Grammel provided a fabulous evening of entertainment, music, food, and festivities in celebration of Robert Burns and Robert the Bruce. We deeply appreciate their support, and really had a swell time to boot.
