Charity Challenge (open)

Chair: Carol Jones
Participant release form

Curl for a cause - raise funds for your favorite charity and awareness for your organization. Gather up four or more friends, co-workers or relatives to compete in this great event. Pick a charity of your choice and raise donations. Then come down and curl! Teams get points for dollars raised and rocks scored; the team with the highest total gets bragging rights and keeps the trophy for a year (sorry, like the Stanley Cup you must bring it back). Seasoned curlers coach (and still get your name on the trophy when your team wins).

The Charity Challenge:
  • is for non-curlers. At least 3 members of the 4 person team must be non-curlers. One person may have up to one year experience
  • is an exciting fund raiser
  • is winter sport at its best
  • welcomes spectators. Bring signs and cheer for your favorite team!

The Eighteenth Annual Corporate Charity Curling Challenge to benefit local chari-ties was held on Saturday, March 18, 2017. This year 12 teams of novice curlers “curling for a cause” raised $4,110 for five different charities! Team “4th Street Fritters” coached by Brenda and Phil Citriniti won honors for raising the most money as a team. Team "IR Rockettes" coached by Dawn Scherer won highest curling points.

Team “The Alternative Fact Chuckers” was named Bonspiel Grand Champion for their combined fundraising and curling ability. The team of employees from SUNY Upstate Medical University was new to the event. Team members were Doug Rosenthal, Sue Rosenthal, Tim Byrne, and Dan Malay. Stu Card expertly coached the team. The monies they raised went to benefit the Upstate Foundation – Kids with Cancer.
