Good news. The Rocking for Ukraine Bonspiel on April 2 at the North Grenville Curling Club (NGCC) raised a total of $13,789.14 to be distributed evenly to the Ukraine Red Cross and a local refugee program.
We had 80 curlers participate and over 80 businesses and individuals donated either money or prizes. Two local bands provided entertainment during the day, The Grateful Kids and Electric Echo. About 100 members and guests enjoyed our first sit down club dinner in over two years.
Our Sunday Night Rental players also stepped up and donated their prize money to the cause, which was then matched by one of their players.
We were happy to be able to make a positive influence on both the local and global stage. Together, along with your support, we will continue to provide North Grenville and its citizens a great venue in which to curl. We hope that our collective efforts this year will make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves.
‘Thank you’ to everyone involved for a job well done.
