Icelandair sponsored ‘Last Bostonian Skating’ charity event to be held this weekend

The Icelandair sponsored ‘Last Bostonian Skating’ charity event is to be held this weekend, at the Kendall Square Community Ice Skating Rink in Boston, Massachusetts. Icelandair will be sponsoring a day of free ice skating and skate rentals in order to raise money. Proceeds raised will be used to support the Center for Families programming at the Children’s Hospital Boston, including supplying plane tickets for patients and their families to take a trip of a lifetime to Iceland.

The aim of the ‘Last Bostonian Skating’ event is to offer the local community a day of fun and unity, whilst raising money and awareness for two important causes – the Icelandair Special Children Travel Fund, and The Children’s Hospital Boston.

Also during the charity event, some of Iceland’s up-and-coming musicians will be performing, including Mugison, Soley, Petur Ben, and Lay Low. Furthermore, the award-winning Icelandic chef Hakon Mar Orvarsson will be cooking up his world famous lamb soup for all those partaking.

To help aid with contributions, gifts from Icelandair, The Blue Lagoon and Iceland’s premiere outerwear company, 66 North, will also be available for donations.

The 2012 ‘Last Bostonian Skating’ event, organised in cooperation with A Taste of Iceland, offers up Icelandic music, film and culinary surprises, and much more between 1st and 4th March 2012 at Boston’s Kendall Square Community Ice Skating Rink. Icelandair encourages you to bring your family and friends to enjoy this free ice skating event.

The ‘Last Bostonian Skating’ event is to be held on Saturday 3rd March 2012 at Kendall Square Community Ice Skating Rink in Boston, Massachusetts.
