A fundraiser for world class lakecity water-skier Conley Pinette will take place this Saturday evening at the Laughing Loon.
Laughing Loon owner Richard Kohlen is hosting the dinner and silent auction to help with Pinette’s travel expenses to the upcoming International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation World Junior Championships in Lima, Peru this Jan. 8-11.
Pinette, 14, qualified this past summer in Spray Lake, Ont., at the Canadian Waterski Championships where he skied to gold medals in jump and trick, and won a bronze medal in slalom for first-place overall at the competition.
“Let’s help Conley with travel costs and support another incredible local junior athlete,” Kohlen said.
Tickets are $15 each and are available at the Laughing Loon. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. with the auction to follow at 7 p.m.
