A lo­cal fam­ily in need and the Julie MacLach­lan Foun­da­tion are the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of a re­cent beach vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment, held at Char­lot­ten­burgh Park.

The July 21 fundraiser, spear­headed by Colton Gal­lant, was billed as ‘Serv­ing Kind­ness,’ and the day-long event raised $2,000.

The South Glen­gar­rian ex­tends his thanks to the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee of Cid Deschamps, Tori Burns, Eric La­marche, Marni Cam­peau, Leo Flood, Cody Bour­get, and Yanik Ro­zon, as well as to “all the par­tic­i­pants, vol­un­teers, and spec­ta­tors that came out to sup­port the event.”

In par­tic­u­lar, Gal­lant notes the help of the Raisin Re­gion Con­ser­va­tion Author­ity and park staff in ac­com­mo­dat­ing the fundraiser.

The team of Chelsea Bo­lado claimed the tro­phy, fol­low­ing a thrilling fi­nal with Ally Lecky’s gang.
