Although there will be no physical curling tournament this year, we still need to raise money for the children’s hospitals, so we decided to a hold a virtual tournament. What exactly is a virtual curling tournament? It will be a tournament where winners are randomly picked from all registered teams in tournament style in fun, different ways and fans can watch online in the comfort of their home! Join us to celebrate the day with other participants to watch the fun and make sure to stay with us for supper and speeches!
WHAT ELSE WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR KURLING FOR KIDS DURING 2021?
A Message from Stan Fong, Kurling for Kids Director
"KURLING FOR KIDS 2021 IS A GO!!!"
Normally at this time of year the Kurling for Kids campaign is in full force. In fact, it was almost a year ago that the difficult decision was taken to cancel the main curling event for the 2020 edition of Kurling for Kids, for the safety of our participants, volunteers, supporters, and organizers. A year later, we are still in a position where we cannot hold a live curling event, and the pandemic which has gripped the world is still front and center in all our lives.
We certainly hope that we can get back out on the ice next year in 2022.
The question now became what does Kurling for Kids do for the 2021 campaign? After discussing with several of the hospitals we support, and looking at other fundraising campaigns and charities, we are moving forward!
How will the 2021 K4K campaign work? We’re planning several awesome monthly events starting in April with our virtual curling tournament! Other events include a trivia night, poker nights, our ever-popular curling jersey auctions, an online curling tournament, the craft fair, and much more! It all culminates with our main raffle draw on October 16th, 2021 with amazing prizes! Visit our website for more information and how to participate in our exciting campaign events!
We encourage participants and fundraisers to register for FREE on our newly updated website and start fundraising, and then take part in one or more of the many great events we have planned!
New for this year – Kurling for Kids wants to go Canada wide! Kurling for Kids started in Quebec and expanded to Ontario, but the goal is to one day help support children’s hospitals across our great country. You can help make this happen! Contact me on how you can help.
