The BOCES Career and Technical Center, located at 5550 Route 242 in Ellicottville, will host the Skills USA fundraising event on Tuesday, April 9 from 2–6:30 p.m.

At the event, students will wash and detail cars, provide cosmetology services, basic dog grooming by appointment, child fingerprinting and photos. There will also be a bake sale along with popcorn, cotton candy, and hot dogs for sale.

The money raised will help fund the Skills USA members’ attendance at the New York state conference where they will compete in their respective trade areas.

“This is a great opportunity for students to showcase their skills and compete with peers throughout the state,” said Jim Schifley, a BOCES and Skills USA official.

Winners at this event will move on to the National Skills Conference in Kansas City, Mo., the week of June 24.

Any local businesses that would like to support the event or the Skills USA club directly can contact Ed Arnold or Jim Schifley at (716) 376-8300.
