The Illinois Valley Figure Skating Club will be hosting an ice skating show that is free to the public, in exchange for a donation to The HOPE Chest Pekin, a local Pekin charity that assists individuals within the community. The theatrical numbers will feature various Disney characters and their tales, and has been choreographed by team coach and member, Jenn Fortin. Special guest skater, Barbie Long, a member of Team USA who represents the IVFSC both nationally and internationally, will also be performing. Donations of peanut butter, jelly, and macaroni and cheese, in addition to cash donations are being sought by IVFSC to fill the HOPE Chest wish lists. Per Coach Susan Liss, "It was not too long ago that we were seeking a home base for our figure skating club and the Pekin Park District welcomed our skaters into their facility. It is our opportunity to give back to the community who so graciously opened its doors to us in our time of homelessness and need."
