Even more snow for this year’s holiday party for children with severe medical challenges and their families! Lee’s Ice gave us a 60% discount for seven tons of snow plus the slide. For the first time, the kids can both play in the snow and slide down on rubber tubes this year. Ms. Hippo in her tutu and wearing ice skates will share the Florida snow with the enthusiastic children.





The snow angel sponsors this year are:

  • Lee’s Ice (Peggy Naughton, Joseph Wolfson, Andrew Johnson, Roy and Raymond Surber): They have will slush seven tons of ice cubes into snow. Peggy told us that if she wants to lift her spirits, she watches the video from the 2016 party. When you visit Lee’s Food Store, at 5604 Swift Road in Sarasota, let Peggy know how much you appreciate their angel deed for the kids.
  • Silliman Fluid Power (Matt, Chip and Cathy Silliman): They are also a third-year snow sponsor and supply many of the specialty parts (hoses, pumps, valves) to run the internal hydraulic systems of our WIT Machines.
  • SiestaKey.com/Tropical Sands Accommodations (Steve and Traci Cavanaugh): A second-year snow sponsor and they are experts in arranging wonderful vacations for families visiting Siesta Key, FL. Stop by to visit with Shawn and Traci (5116 Ocean Boulevard, Siesta Key), next door to the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce. They can tell you about beautiful white sand vacations.
  • Our friends, Scott and Deb Self of Georgia, are joining the other snow angel sponsors for the first year.
  • Our companies, AquaNew and WIT International, are sponsors for “Flight” since 2012.

Sidney Ettedgui of the Manatee County Sheriff’s Department is the lead angel for the kids. He continues to be highly motivated after decades of helping the kids. Sidney raises funds all year so the Flight to the North Pole, Inc. Foundation can help kids who are recovering in hospitals.

Flight to the North Pole, Inc. (Bradenton, FL.)  is a non-profit 501c3 organization, with its mission of bringing joy to terminally ill during the holiday season.
