Winter Waterskiing to Benefit American Family Children's Hospital

The Mad-City Ski Team will brave the chilly waters of Lake Monona to raise money for the American Family Children's Hospital.MADISON - For the third consecutive year, the Mad-City Ski Team will brave the ice cold waters of Lake Monona to benefit American Family Children's Hospital.


The team is partnering with Skipper Buds to put on a water show at Law Park in Madison, Wisconsin. The park is located off John Nolen Drive near the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center.


Kick-off for the third annual Project Snowflake show begins Saturday, Dec. 3 at noon, with the water show starting by 1 pm. Admission is free.


Ski team members will perform a variety of maneuvers and stunts including pyramids, ballet skiing, wakeboarding and barefoot skiing going forward and backwards.


During the afternoon, there will be a silent auction and raffle tickets for prizes donated from local merchants. Some of the items will include:

    • Premier Powerboat rental
    • A football signed by the Badgers
    • A football signed by Green Bay Packers players
  • A "Treat Tower" from Swiss Colony
  • Tanning sessions from Madison Tanning
  • Lemon quartz pendant with a ribbon necklace from T.Q. Diamonds
  • Gift basket and salon services from Euphoria Salon
  • Gift certification from Massage Envy
  • Irradiant Blue Diamond earrings and necklaces from Kesslers Jewelers

While the performers will have dry suits and ski gloves, the frigid temps will still present some challenges. But, as the Mad-City members explain, "Project Snowflake" is a perfect fit with kids, because like snowflakes, every one is unique.
