Bonspiel to support cancer research
A bonspiel fundraiser is planned for Sunday, March 8 at the Cornwall Curling Centre.
Twenty- four rinks will be competing in an event that supports the Ottawa Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Organizer Carol Ann Rattray has a request: “I would ask all women and men who have or have had breast cancer to come to the Cornwall Curling Centre at approximately 3 p.m. for a group photo. This photo will show the need for continued research by Dr. Clemons and associates.”
On a personal note, she adds, “This is one of my ways of paying it forward for all the wonderful support I have received from my family and friends the past three years, and if one person can benefit from the money raised, then I will be a very happy person.”
The bonspiel is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m., with coffee, snacks, and a noon-time meal available. There will also be a silent auction. Scotiabank will match funds raised, up to $5,000.
