During the 2017-2018 curling season the Riverview Curling Club will once again support the theme of “SWEEPING CANCER FROM OUR HOUSE”.  This year will mark their fifth annual fundraising bonspiel which will be held November 17-19th, 2017.

A major contributing factor to their most successful donation season was due to the incredible support they had from WestJet by raffling off two WestJet tickets, for anywhere WestJet flies!   As a result of generous donations they were able to donate a total of $15,000.00 from this past season alone, more than the previous years’ combined totals.

With the help of local businesses, associations and organizations, their club has in just four years, donated an amazing $28,740.88 to support cancer patients here in western Manitoba.  A special fund has been established to provide assistance for patients who do not have the financial resources to cover the costs of basic necessities related to their treatment.  This could include the cost of non-prescription medications, food, transportation, or accommodation, and will be accessed when all other avenues of funding have been exhausted.
