Alex’s family invites you and your friends to brave the cold waters of the Fox River in McHenry at Snug Harbor. We will be pledging our support to Alex’s Family to help out with the countless costs incurred by his passing, by doing some of the things Alex loved best, wakeboarding and waterskiing. Those of you who are willing to face the chilly waters of the Fox River will receive a free gift and possibly win one of the great prize packages available that day.

Food & drink specials will be available courtesy of Snug Harbor starting at 11am.

Wakeboarding and waterskiing will begin at 8am Saturday morning and continue until all riders have had a pull. In an effort to make this event as successful as possible, we ask you to try and raise a minimum of $50 to participate.

All those willing to ride this day, please contact Eric @ Chicago MasterCraft to get a donation form, as well as a time slot for riding for that day. In addition to the watersports, a bags competition will also begin at 9am, teams are limited to the first 32 pairs to sign up. A minimum of a $30 entry donation per team is suggested.

There will be prizes for participants ranging from wakeboard and waterski packages, clothing, snowboard items, and countless others. Prizes will be awarded for the best crash, best costume, best trick, and the most money raised.

Additionally, a silent auction with items from generous local businesses will also be on site.
Even if you do not wakeboard or waterski, or don’t want to get in the water, please come by Snug Harbor to show your support! Donations can also be made at Munson Ski & Marine up until Friday, October 22nd. They also will be accepted at Snug Harbor the day of the event.

A goal of $10,000 has been made for the event, so let’s give it our all, just like Alex did, and make this the event of events. Your time and effort will go to help lift the burden Alex’s family is faced with while going through these very trying times.

Any questions regarding the event, donations as an individual or as a sponsor, do not hesitate to ask, email [email protected] or call 815-788-1111.

Come help us remember one of our best friends, Alex Baer, by hanging out with friends and family.

Think about it... $50 to help support this cause is easy guys! Ask 10 of your friends for 5$ and you are there!
