Karl’s Kids is a Damariscotta-Newcastle Rotary event that honors the late Karl Berger. Karl’s Kids helps less fortunate kids and teens in Lincoln County who want to participate in athletics or indoor/outdoor experiences. Karl’s Kids helps make dreams real.

The event starts with registration at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel at 8 a.m. for the fun race on the Boardwalk race course. For a $5 contribution, all registered racers will receive a Karl’s Kids racing penny to show their support. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be open skiing. The fun race will begin at 2 p.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. Prizes for fastest, slowest and craziest-dressed skiers will be awarded at the silent auction at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel at 5:30 p.m. There also will be a chance to win a whitewater rafting trip as part of a balloon raffle. Each balloon costs $5, and there are prizes in every balloon with a chance to win the whitewater rafting trip.

After the race there will be a closing reception at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel with a silent auction from 4:30 to 6 p.m. The reception will have free hearty hors d’ oeuvres, refreshments and a thank-you to all the sponsors.
