Shoot­ing for a Cure

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF -

The 12th an­nual “Come shoot for a cure” dart tour­na­ment was a rollicking suc­cess, rais­ing over $2,300 for breast cancer re­search. Held last Satur­day at the Stanstead Legion, 38 teams com­peted this time, a few more than usual. “We had a full house. We even had a spe­cial visit from Pierre Reid who do­nated some money to­wards Chris Tetreault’s hair­cut,” said Mar­i­lyn McComb, the or­ga­nizer of the event. The first place win­ners were Chris Main and Mary-Claude Mercier. Al­though Ms. McComb stopped hold­ing an auc­tion dur­ing the event be­cause it was too time-con­sum­ing to or­ga­nize, people still brought in items for the auc­tion so Gary Green­wood of­fered to auc­tion off the seven­teen items, rais­ing $529. “We ended up rais­ing $1,529 on the day of the tour­na­ment, and a to­tal of $2,384.20 with all the cheques that came in, mostly from businesses in Len­noxville and Sher­brooke,” said Ms. McComb. “I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who helped,” she added.
