Learn more: http://curling-quebec.qc.ca/development-support/?lang=en. Take advantage of the curling break to host this workshop in your club: it is the best time to make a plan for the upcoming year. Contact email@example.com to organize a meeting.
4-) Results: Fundraising Campaign 2016-2017 : We wish to thank everyone who made our fundraising campaign 2016-2017 a success. Thanks to the precious support of our members, Curling Québec was able to raise $12,550 and the program Placements Sports matched that amount with $28,865.
These funds were and will be used for a variety of programs. In the last year:
– A new promotion campaign titled « Don’t think twice, get out on the ice » was launched to attract new curlers all over the province.
– Many new youth initiatives were put in place, like Igloo where every new curler aged 6-12 year old received their first curling broom and activities in schools like Curling in the gym.
– Curling on the web: livestreaming of provincial championships.
And we have more projets on the go! Day camps, provincial circuit for the 6-12 year-old, promotional kits, training and webinars, and more. Learn more: http://curling-quebec.qc.ca/programs-services/sports-investments/?lang=en
