Bon­spiel to sup­port can­cer re­search

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Sean Bray

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to get in­volved, please con­tact Carol Ann Rat­tray at 613-938-0627 or carol.ann.r@sym­pa­tico.ca
