The Spirit of Curling 2016

Awesome fundraising tool for curling facilities

This thing is awesome!
This thing is awesome!

As today’s Curling Canada news release details, the 2016 edition of The Spirit of Curling wall calendar is now on sale, and two groups will benefit: 1) the next generation of curlers and 2) Canada’s curling centres.

A portion of the proceeds goes to the Curling Canada Foundation — the philanthropic program that benefits young curlers and curling centres across the country.
“We were thrilled with the response last year, because the money played a significant role in continuing to build our sport across Canada,” said Rachael Wilson, Director, Fund Development for Curling Canada. “It’s a beautiful calendar, and it reminds us of why we fell in love with the Roaring Game, and why it’s so important to get young people involved.”
Printed on high-quality glossy stock, the calendar displays images of Canada’s top curling athletes as well as everyday grassroots participants. Specific themes include the unique attraction of outdoor curling, Canada’s success at the world junior championships and even Rocks & Rings, the elementary school curling program.

The Spirit of Curling also contains a full events guide showing Curling Canada’s national championship events and, in fact, additional curling events from around the world. The listings ar colour-coded signifying men’s, women’s, mixed and open events, making this a true curling calendar.

The calendars are now available for purchase at thespiritofcurling.com at a cost of $20 each plus taxes, shipping and handling. Orders will start shipping later this month, making it a perfect holiday gift idea.

But that’s not all.
“The Spirit of Curling calendar is also available to curling centres as a fundraising tool,” said Rick Warner, CEO of project partner The Community Fundraiser. “Curling centres get a special price and get to keep a portion of sales for their own use, be it infrastructure costs, junior curling programs or anything else that requires funding.”
The Community Fundraiser and The Curling News have now produced curling-themed wall calendars dating back to 2009, covering the Women of Curling era, the ultra-successful Men of Curling product of 2014 and last year’s Spirit of Curling effort.
