From its theme to the featured skaters, this year’s production by Gliding Stars of Western New York is a family affair.
Two sets of twins, two members of an extended family and a 6-year-old girl who’s a soloist among five participating siblings will take to the ice for this weekend’s performances of “Family Game Night on Ice” at Northtown Center at Amherst.
“So many stories,” Gliding Stars founder Elizabeth O’Donnell said.
Founded in 2004, the adaptive ice skating program for people with disabilities has chapters in several states – including two in New York – and continues to grow.
Friday night and Saturday afternoon, more than 100 skaters and 200 volunteers will participate in the 11th annual ice skating show, which brings together people who have been skating at rinks in Hamburg or Niagara Falls since last October.
