Announcing Spring 2017 Community Education Series
Get Ready to Curl
Curling Challenge 2017
Register Your Team Now!
Participating teams will have time to learn or refresh their curling skills prior to the tournament and will compete throughout the day on Saturday, March 11. As in the past, prizes will be awarded for the top fundraising team and individuals. And as in previous years, all participants will need to sign a waiver before getting on the ice.
Funds raised from this year's event will support our critical community based services and our client emergency and enrichment funds.
