Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Mar­i­lyn McComb’s 14th an­nual “Come Shoot for a Cure” dart tour­na­ment was an­other re­sound­ing suc­cess, rais­ing $2,473, and count­ing, for the Cana­dian Can­cer So­ci­ety’s breast can­cer re­search. “I couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter day. Ev­ery­thing went smoothly and we were able to raise $681 just with the auc­tion,” com­mented Mrs. McComb.

A to­tal of forty-two dou­bles teams took part in the tour­na­ment which was held at the Stanstead Le­gion Hall. “We served dif­fer­ent kinds of sand­wiches in­stead of hot dogs and ham­burg­ers this time dur­ing the tour­na­ment, be­cause the hot­dogs and ham­burg­ers are too ex­pen­sive now to buy. But ev­ery­one seemed to like the sand­wiches,” said Mar­i­lyn. A raf­fle was held and plenty of door prizes were won by the dart play­ers.

Win­ners of the tour­na­ment were Travis Fe­quet and Ch­eryl Burn­ham, se­cond place went to Fred and Judy Bryant, and third place went to Su­san Roberge and Marvin McClure.

Asked what makes peo­ple so sup­port­ive of her tour­na­ment ev­ery year, Mrs. McComb an­swered: “There was not one per­son in the Le­gion who didn’t know some­one with can­cer. Even when peo­ple can’t come to the tour­na­ment, many of them will send their do­na­tions in. We even saw a lot of new faces at the tour­na­ment this year.”
