On February 3, QSR hosted our annual bonspiel fundraiser, with a new twist for 2018:  Curl for Kids.  
With nine teams, we spent the morning out on the ice, learning about hog lines, hacks, and how to 'hurry hard'.  In total, over $4400 was raised, all of which will be re-invested into programs and organizations dedicated to helping children and youth in our local area.  After a morning on the ice and a tasty lunch, we welcomed Charlie Benson from Camp Trillium; his visit was two-fold:
  1. President Alison presented him with a cheque for over $7300, representing funds our club raised during Operation Red Nose in 2017, and in turn,
  2. Charlie presented a plaque signifying $100,000 raised and donated by Quinte Sunrise to Camp Trillium.  As a small club, this is a huge achievement and we are extremely proud
We are only able to do what we do with the generous support of our club members and community supporters, including those who participated in our bonspiel:
  • Quinte Curling Club
  • Quinte Health Care, Children's Treatment Centre
  • Quinte First Credit Union
  • C&C Delivery
  • Klemencic Homes
  • Belleville Dragon Boat Club
  • Team Terpstra
  • Team Mathany
