Recently, the Foundation of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) hosted its 7th Annual Charity Curling Classic at the Sydenham Community Curling Club in Wallaceburg.
Sixteen teams of four participated in this event and helped raise over $11,500 through sponsorship, pledges, 50/50 Draw and a silent auction. Proceeds from the event will support the Foundation of CKHA’s Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign.
The event featured two, six-end, games of curling, lunch, dinner and prizes.
The event’s Top Fundraising Team was Sweeping Bones, with $1,050 raised through pledges. Taking home the title of the event’s points leader and winning team was Matt Mapletoft, Larry Mapletoft, Erin Glasgow and Tyler Gauthier.
“We are thrilled with the support of Wallaceburg and area individuals and business that helped make the event a huge success,” Mary Lou Crowley, Executive Director, Foundation of CKHA, said in a release. “Although new to this wonderful community, I have quickly learned how passionate people are about health care and Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. Events like this highlight that passion and raise much needed funds for our hospital. . Thank you to everyone who supported this great day of fundraising for CKHA’s Chatham and Wallaceburg hospital sites.”
