Patriot Place’s Winter Skate Finale on Ice Show Benefits Hockomock Area YMCA, Cradles to Crayons

Winter Skate presented by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care wraps up seventh season of outdoor ice skating with Finale on Ice show featuring more than 15 performances.

With the sun shining brightly on an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon, dozens of competitive figure skaters took the ice to perform in Winter Skate’s Finale on Ice show, sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating, at Patriot Place to benefit the Hockomock Area YMCA’s Reach Out for Youth & Families Campaign and Cradles to Crayons.

“What a great day for families to come out and enjoy this event,” Patriot Place General Manager Brian Earley said. “We are thrilled to partner with the Pawtucket and Providence Figure Skating Club to host our fourth annual Finale on Ice figure skating show at Patriot Place. In addition to the great figure skating performances, 100 percent of today’s proceeds benefit the Hockomock Area YMCA’s Reach Out for Youth & Families Campaign and Cradles to Crayons. A big thank you to all of the figure skaters and to everyone who came out to support these two great community resources.”
