DUNKIRK - The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) is hosting an ice skating event in celebration of 30 years of community enrichment. The event will take place at the Steele Hall Ice Arena, SUNY Fredonia on Saturday, March 19, 2016, from 12 - 2 p.m. Admission is free for all community members. NCCF will also provide free ice skate rentals.

Come and join us for fun activities with on-ice games and off-ice activities. Ice skating assistants from the Fredonia Figure Skating Club will be on hand to help out new skaters. The Fredonia Blue Devil will make an appearance for pictures and to mingle with those in attendance.

Friends and families are encouraged to bring a "gift of philanthropy" to benefit the Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue, Lakeshore Humane Society, and Westfield Stray Cat Rescue. Items such as cat and dog toys, dog harnesses and sweaters, cat beds and scratch posts, blankets, gas cards, etc. are ideal. Additional items can be found on each organizations' website. Bringing a gift enters you in a basket raffle to be given away at the end of the event (need not be present to win).

Enter the Be a Philanthropist contest for a chance to win a $100 grant to your charity of choice! NCCF will provide snacks and drinks.

The NCCF, celebrating 30 years of charitable leadership, is committed to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grantmaking, and community leadership. Served by a small staff and governed by an all-volunteer board of directors, the organization has distributed over $11.7 million in the form of grants and scholarships within the community. Truly community in nature, the NCCF is an organization created by and for the people of northern Chautauqua County. For more information, visit
