What started as a way of giving back following a pandemic of which curlers were unable to gather, the Tunnel Town Curling Club Ladies Bonspiel Committee saw an opportunity last year, to start a new tradition.
With a fundraising goal of $500 for the BC Cancer Foundation, the “60 Shades of Pink” Bonspiel, through the generosity of the sponsors and participants, proudly raised $2,000 benefiting breast cancer support - in addition to hosting 18 teams for a weekend of fun, friendship, food and awarding more than $4,000 in cash to the winning teams.
This weekend’s event, Feb. 9 to 11 is sold out and will see 100 women ‘Curl for the Girls.’
“Our goal this year is to surpass last year’s donation for the BC Cancer Foundation, benefitting Breast Cancer research and care,” said Tunnel Town general manager Sandra Boisvert. “With the generous support we have received from our members and local businesses, we are well on our way. I am so proud of what our little club can achieve.”
Tunnel Town Curling Club is a non-profit organization located at the South Delta Recreation Centre. The club provides curling opportunities for members of the community, of all ages and ability levels to participate in the sport of curling in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment.
