Community Fundraisers

Many communities are able to provide their athletes with opportunities to travel and compete because they have great fundraising events. Perhaps "fundraising destinations" will become a travel and tourism trend! There's the March 4th "Rumble at the Mac" fundraising curling tournament in Timmins (number in the flyer below), and the Bluegrass Festival on Manitoulin Island over June 9/10/11 sounds like a great weekend event for the whole family. (Visit http://www.bluegrassinthecountry.net/ for more info.) These events see proceeds directed to Special Olympics programs in those communities.
