Curl for Kids Event Raises Over $20,000 for Local Youth

February 14, 2017 Ingersoll, Ontario — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg and area are pleased to announce that its Curl for Kids event raised $20,200 for local families and children.

Curling teams had fun making an impact in a child’s life at two separate curling events, held February 4 in Ingersoll and February 11 in Tillsonburg.  Teams enjoyed two six-end games, a hot lunch and prizes.  The top fundraising teams were Landon & Friends and the Bossy Nagy Group.  Top individual fundraisers were Davis Landon and Dave Harnett.

Curl for Kids is proudly sponsored by Scotiabank Tillsonburg, HeartFM, Easy 101 and Country 107.3.

"It was again a pleasure to sponsor, and be involved in, such a fun event. We feel it is important to support our youth, who represent our future, and it's great to see so many members of the community coming out to support such a worthwhile organization,” says David Abrams, Scotiabank, Tillsonburg.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we recognize that when children thrive, our community is stronger. We are inspired by watching children grow, teaching skills and empowering them to make good decisions.  Their stories and successes motivate us.  Children and youth who are involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters grow into healthy, engaged citizens. We offer unique, innovative programs that are flexible and fun for adult volunteers of all ages.  Visit www.sharethefun.org to learn how you can make a difference in a child’s life.
