Skippers' Sale for Competition Bankroll

by

Lauded year after year for their precision skills with the rope (if you've missed them on Good Morning America, Late Night with David Letterman or at any one of their numerous local appearances, these kids make double dutch look as easy as walking and chewing gum), the Summerwind Skippers are preparing for international battle yet again. With several world titles notched on its belt, the Summerwind team is heading to Toronto in July to compete in the "Olympics of jump rope." But first, they need some dough to get there. To raise funds, the team is holding a garage sale and bake sale. All proceeds benefit the Summerwind Skippers.

Saturday, May 20, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Summerwind Elementary School Gym, 3675 N. Jullion Way. For more information on the Summerwind Skippers, visit www.summerwindskippers.org.
