Thank you to all who came out the last 6 years and made this event such an incredible and enduring success. Over the last 6 years you have raised over 120k dollars. The money you have donated along with your support has had an incredible impact on my life. I hope those who have made it out in the past, can come and make the event another resounding success. Those who haven't been yet, you're missing out and hope to see you this year.
To those who don't know about the event, the Curl-A-Thon, is a fundraiser put on by my friends and family at the Philadelphia Curling Club, which I've been a member of since 1997. The event is open to everyone (friends, family, children, adults, strangers, etc.), there will be food, fun, drinks, and curling going on from 6pm Friday March 14th to 10 pm Saturday March 15th.
As a precursor to the Curl-A-thon you will note on this site a US Nationals Curling Extravaganza raffle, with all proceeds going into a non-profit fund (Help, Hope, Live. Formerly NTAF) set up in my name to help offset continuing costs related to my injury. At $10 per entry (max 200 tickets sold) you can win an incredible package for you and 5 friends to attend this year's US Nationals to be held in Aston, PA.
Your donations over the last 6 years have allowed me to purchase a wheelchair van, rugby wheelchair, accessible home modifications, pay for personal aide assistance, pay for out of pocket medical necessities and many other related items.
Stop in Friday or Saturday, say hello, have a beer, try your luck at curling and enjoy this year's Mardi Gras theme . We will have food and drink over the course of the weekend for a small price. If you're feeling adventurous and would like to try curling, Saturday March 14th from 6pm on, there will be open curling for all to try. I will post more updates as we work out the schedule.
