Toss a Skillet For Charity at Greene’s Applefest

Audrey Johnson

Among the apple pies, cider, crafters and activities for the kids, is the iron skillet toss- a unique art of hurling a frying pan. Each September, the Chenango County Habitat for Humanity  hosts a “Skillet Toss” at the Greene Applefest and this year will be no different.

“What’s a Skillet Toss” you ask? It’s pretty much just what it sounds like- a competition to see who can throw a specially fabricated and weighted 3 ½ pound steel skillet the furthest.

The Skillet Toss, is both for fun and for charity as money raised benefits Chenango County Habitat for Humanity house builds. Think you’re up to the challenge? Habitat will be at the Greene Applefest from 9-4 this Saturday, September 26th at the Ball Flats. The Skillet Toss is open to all ages and there’s even a little skillet for little hands.  Participants are asked for $1 per two tosses,  however, donations are gladly accepted.

If you’re not familiar with Habitat for Humanity, the way they work is that that they offer “a hand up, not a handout”. Your donations help Habitat make dreams come true by helping to provide affordable housing to families in Chenango County.

If you can’t make the Skillet Toss, but would like to be part of the next CCHH house construction, or if you can contribute time or materials, reach out to Sandra Colton at 607- 334-7492.

The Greene Applefest is sponsored by the First United Methodist Church of Greene.
