5th Annual Real Deal Bonspiel Fundraiser
… the most anticipated Bonspiel of the year is almost here (cue epic music)…
March 28th is the 5th Annual
Real Deal Bonspiel !
That’s right, we’re back with non-stop end-to-end curling action, costumes, crazy rules, prizes and of course the famous Aaron and Amy Castle dinner buffet!
This year we will be holding the event at the Garrison Woods Curling Club (2288 47 Ave SW, Calgary) so we now have 6 sheets of ice to pack in the fun. The entry fee is $100 and includes equipment rentals, prizes and dinner (worth the entry price alone!) but as always, anything you give above the entry fee is greatly appreciated as it all goes towards helping young adult cancer survivors and their supporters come on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition with us this summer. You can pay the entry fee on the day of the event by cash, cheque or credit card.Order of Events:
1:30pm – Opening Ceremonies/Team Name Presentations
1:45pm – Curling Lesson from World Junior Champion Matthew Ng!!
2:00pm – Bonspiel!
6:30pm – Awards, Dinner and Survive & Thrive Cancer Programs Presentation
8:30pm – Official End of Events
9:30pm – Rink Closes
Team uniforms are highly encouraged and gets you lots of cool points (plus it’s intimidating, look at that picture above!?! Scary…). Make sure to communicate with your teammates beforehand about your team name and wardrobe selection.
Finally, there will be an awesome prize for the highest fundraising team again this year… a weekend rafting trip down the stunning Kootenay River!! To see what last years trip was like, take a look at the video below. Encourage your friends and family to donate on our website by sending them this link: http://survivethrive.org/donate and make sure that they put your name in the comment box.
Please email ASAP if you are able to attend this year. So stoked for the event and for the opportunity to share with all of you the incredible stories and new developments from another year of Survive & Thrive Cancer Programs!!
