Battle of the Blades, the community fundraiser to end all community fundraisers, returns to Sun Valley center ice on Friday, September 5. Following a one-year hiatus, this wildly popular event, sponsored by the Sun Valley Figure Skating Club promises to be bigger, badder and better than ever.

If you missed the sold-out events in 2011 and 2012, Battle of the Blades pairs nine local celebrity amateurs with highly accomplished figure skating professionals. Each competes in a professionally choreographed, fully costumed two-minute routine. A panel of celebrity judges provides 50 percent of the final score while the other half is determined by an audience applause meter. To further inspire community involvement, each contestant chooses a non-profit organization to represent. The top three finishers all win cold hard cash for the worthy organization of their choice.
