Mark Jan. 27 on your calendar. It's only a few weeks away, and it is the day of one of the coolest fund raisers for one of our favorite organizations. Pets Alive in Middletown will be holding their Powder for Pups event fund raiser at Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park on Holiday Mountain Road in Monticello.

Powder for Pups is a fun day of snow tubing at Holiday Mountain to benefit the animals at Pets Alive. For just $30 per person, you get 2 hours of tubing and vouchers for pizza and soda. There will be two sessions to choose from. Either 11 am - 1 pm or 1 pm - 3 pm to fit your schedule. There will also be raffles and a bake sale, so come prepared to enjoy some extra goodies. And kids under 44 inches get a free bumper car ride!
