February 15th – Bradford, ON – TECHCOM™ in support of the 11th Annual Curling for Puppies Bonspiel
Over the Family Day weekend, a few of the TECHCOM team members took part in the 11th Annual Curling for Puppies Bonspiel at the Bradford Curling Club hosted by the North Newmarket Lions Club to raise money for the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides program (www.dogguides.com).
As a proud sponsor of the Olympic gold medal winning Team Jacobs curling team, TECHCOM™ was pleased to have Skip, Brad Jacobs, attend the event giving participants a glimpse of how to curl like a pro. Brad graciously answered attendee questions and gave tips on how to warm up, throw a rock, sweep effectively and most importantly, to stay safe and have fun.
The event was a success running two bonspiels during both the day and evening with raffles, prizes and a silent auction to raise funds for the cause. The attendees had the opportunity to meet several of the puppy students and folks who have benefitted from this amazing cause.
In the early 1980’s Lions Clubs across Canada sought to develop a national project to reflect their service to Canadians with visual impairments. The result was the Lions Foundation of Canada and its founding program, Canine Vision Canada, which was established in 1985. Since then the Foundation has grown to include additional Dog Guide programs such as Hearing, Service, Seizure Response, Autism Assistance, Diabetic Alert and newly introduced, Facility Support.
TECHCOM is a proud supporter of various local and national charitable initiatives and wishes to thank everyone who donated their time and support to the 11th Annual Curling for Puppies Bonspiel.
