 After a year’s hiatus, Liberty Station’s outdoor holiday ice rink is returning to the Arts District from Nov. 18 to Jan. 9, once more raising funds for Rady Children’s Hospital.

Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary, Sentre, and NTC Foundation welcome everyone back to celebrate the holidays with the return of the ice skating rink to the Central Promenade at Arts District Liberty Station.

The ice rink will be open Mondays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas days. Special happenings at the ice rink include Gulls Night, iHeart Rady Children’s Night, Rady Children’s Auxiliary Day, and more.

All net proceeds from the three-week-long event will benefit the Thriving After Cancer program at the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital.

“Thriving After Cancer is a fantastic program that provides children who are near completion, or have completed, their cancer treatments the tools and education they need to advocate for physical, emotional, nutritional, and practical needs,” said Karry McDannald, president of Rady Children’s Auxiliary. “Everyone who joins by coming to the ice rink is helping support a vital resource for hundreds of San Diego families.”

It is the 25th year for the fundraising event, which started out in Horton Plaza downtown and was moved six years ago to Liberty Station’s Arts District.

“It’s really the only ice rink of its kind in San Diego where 100% of net proceeds go to the hospital,” said Lisa Johnson, president/CEO of NTC Foundation, established in 2000 as a nonprofit supporting the former Naval Station’s 100-acre Arts District. “We host them (Rady) free of charge. Anything we can to do support infusing more funding to the hospital is what we want to do. It’s a great reason to come out to our ice rink: You’re having fun, but also doing something really important for our community.”

“Liberty Station is such an amazing asset that having the ice rink there really makes it a wonderful location for the whole family,” said Alexandra Loker, VP of philanthropy at Rady Children's Hospital. “The setting is so special. The NTC Foundation does such an incredible job of creating a holiday setting around Liberty Station, that when the ice rink goes in, it kind of becomes the epicenter of this really special holiday area for families.”

Added Loker: “The event is wonderful in providing a great opportunity to have a family outing that is healthy, outside, and in their community. We are happy to have the ice rink not only for philanthropic purposes, but to provide that opportunity for families to be together.”

Ice rink tickets are available online beginning Nov. 15 and the cost is $15 for adults, $13 for children. Discounted tickets for the military are $10 with I.D. Tickets for groups of 10 or more and punch cards offering five visits for $50 are also available and include skate rental and helmets.

For group reservations, email [email protected] or call 619-221-1970.

Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego is the only hospital in San Diego dedicated exclusively to pediatric healthcare and is the region’s only designated pediatric trauma center. Sponsors for this year’s ice rink include the San Diego Gulls, Link Revenue, QuickDry, and more. For updates on Arts District Liberty Station and NTC Foundation, visit ntcfoundation.org.

I basically make about $14,000 to $18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it copy below web…
