Soirée 2020 celebrates 15 years of adaptive sports fundraising

JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton Adaptive Sports [TAS] is celebrating 15 years of accessibility in sports and in life.

Join TAS for the 10th annual TAS Après Soirée Saturday, January 18 from 3:30–7:30 p.m. at the Hotel Terra Ballroom.

“Teton Adaptive Sports and its first ski programs started with a couple of instructors who wanted to make sure friends with disabilities could come too,” says TAS Executive Director Christy Fox. “Skiers are different kinds of fanatics.  We will not let it be possible for one of our friends to not ski.”

Dress according to theme! Fifteen may not be that old, but the theme this year is vintage. Don your best vintage ski outfit for a chance to win the costume contest.

The evening includes music, food, a cash bar, raffle, and silent auction topped off with a vintage ski costume contest.

What’s it for? 

For 15 years, Teton Adaptive Sports has supported accessibility in sports through programs and equipment that allow adaptive athletes to perform their best. It started with skiing, but TAS has grown to offer access to all kinds of different sports throughout the year.

The soirée helps raise funds to buy new adaptive ski equipment, pay for specialized ski instructor adaptive training, provide scholarships for lessons to Jackson’s adaptive skiers, and pay for the free-to-skiers programs TAS offers to special education at Teton County Schools.

Much like Teton Adaptive Sports’ mission, its Après Soiree is for everyone. The low price of admission certainly keeps it accessible and invites everyone in the community to get involved. Instructors, friends, families, and adaptive athletes will all be there to celebrate.

“If getting public school kids with different abilities is our flagship program, Après Soiree is our flagship event,” Fox says. “All the skiers and locals come and support our program at a really grassroots level.”

Kids six years and under get into the soirée for free! Adult tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. Admission includes a raffle ticket and après food.
