The third annual Scotiabank Curling Funspiel was held on Saturday, February 27 at the Meaford Curling Club to raise funds for the Meaford Hospital Foundation, and was once again a huge success.
Ninety-six people came out to support the Foundation and participate in the euchre and curling festivities.
The curling was non-traditional, and added unusual twists to the game such as playing one end blindfold, another left-handed (or right-handed as the case may be), and another by switching positions and so on. This led to a great deal of fun and levelled the playing field between teams.
The top curling/euchre team this year was the Bullock/Davison team consisting of Scott and Tracy Davison, Krista Bullock and Michael Smith, and Ken and Marie Bullock.
With the assistance of many local businesses covering meal expenses and providing raffle prizes, the club raised and donated $2,400 to the Meaford Hospital Foundation to help with their initiatives. The $2,400 fundraised through this year’s Funspiel has pushed the total raised by this event over the past three years to $5,600.
The Curling Club and Hospital Foundation thank everyone who came out and made this day such a success. For more information about supporting the Meaford Hospital Foundation please visit www.mhfoundation.ca, and to learn more about the Meaford Curling Club please visit www.meafordcurling.ca.
