For over ten years AMCC Mon, Tue & Thu Men’s Leagues have collected the proceeds from all December 50/50 proceeds and donated them to Winnipeg’s Christmas Cheer Board. This practice was started by Jim Bender of the Winnipeg Sun and Daryl Fathers, AMCC former Bar Manager.
This year’s donation was $407.00 which is a significant increase over last year’s $268.50. Jim Bender accepted our cheque on behalf of the Christmas Cheer Board and expressed gratitude to the Men’s Leagues for their generosity. Pictured L to R: Cindy Boroskae, Jim Bender, Al Seredynski.
A huge THANK YOU is also extended to Cindy and her bar staff for ensuring that all Men’s League curlers have the “opportunity” to participate.
