Figure Skating in Harlem
Figure Skating in Harlem helps girls transform their lives and grow in confidence, leadership, and academic achievement. They are the only organization in the world for girls of color that combines the power of education with access to the artistic discipline of figure skating to build champions in life. In 2021, the Club’s Junior Activities Committee selected Figure Skating in Harlem as the charitable organization to benefit from their annual service project. To that end, they held a Skate Night Out event for the general public where all proceeds raised were donated to Figure Skating in Harlem.
