Want to be a volunteer?


At the Chilly Open we have the privilege of having devoted people that help with all of the work that needs to be done in producing such a fun and meaningful winter event. During the event itself there are approximately 300 people working 1000 hours to accomplish our goals. A third of that work is donated by one of our beneficiaries, Children's Hunger Alliance. Another third is from our very own Westerville Sunrise Rotary group and all of our family and friends. Without the incredibly positive energy and attitude of all of these folks we could not have this event run as smoothly as it does. Thank you to everyone who helps us contribute to children's charities in central Ohio!
