The Skating Club of Boston will provide a spectacular skating performance that you, your family, and friends will not want to miss! Multiple national competitors and medalists as well as Olympic Bronze Medalist Simon Shnapir and partner Deedee Leng will all be participating.  All proceeds benefit The Salvation Army's Our Place Day Care Center for Homeless Children.
