Chicago Snow Ball

Chicago 2015

Dear U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Supporter, 

This year we are taking a break from the traditional Chicago Ski Ball. 

Rather then hosting a large gala, a much smaller event is being held this year. An evening of rare wines, exquisite food and intimate conversation with Bode Miller and Picabo Street is on November 20th and we are asking for a contribution of $5,000 per person. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Amy Klugherz ( or 435-714-9461).

If you choose not to attend the event, we hope you will continue to support USSA’s athletes through a direct donation to the team. We know you have enjoyed the Chicago Ski Ball in the past and we have been (and continue to be) grateful for your participation. Although the event has changed this year, the need to support the team has not. We need the Chicago community to continue supporting the amazing athletes of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing.

Please consider a contribution similar to what you have provided at previous Ski Balls. To contribute, click on the link below which will take you to an online giving and online auction page or contact Amy Klugherz at or 435-714-9461. All contributions received by December 31 will be attributed to the grand total raised through the Chicago community. Let’s work together to show the USA that Chicago supports our ski and snowboard athletes.

Thank you,

2015 Event Organizers:

John and Jackie Bucksbaum
Jonathon Wells
Yon Parrillo
