Marmora & Area Curling Club
30 years ago the Marmora & Area Curling Club ran the first
“Curl for Kids” Bonspiel. Curling club members Inge & Denny Draper learned about Camp Oechgeas, a Lake Simcoe summer camp for child cancer victims, and suggested that the Club could raise some money locally to support the cause.
They announced a Bonspiel for Mar 22nd 1986 with a goal of $500. Curlers came from Madoc, Norwood, Newmarket and Belleville to join the Marmora curlers. There were 64 curlers and they raised over $800!
The organizors for that first “Curl for Kids” Bonspiel were Inge & Denny Draper, Randy & Jean Vilneff and Joe & Deena MacCauley. Other Curling Clubs followed with their own “Curl for Kids” bonspiels … and still hold them!
The Marmora "Curl for Kids 2015" raised $1,800!
The Marmora "Curl for Kids 2016" raised $2,000!
