During their annual awards celebration the curlers from the Lorette Curling Club came together to raise money for Cancer Care Manitoba on behalf of a fellow curling enthusiast.
Nancy Brommell, President of the Lorette Curling Club says that the club recently came together to raise money to show support for fellow curler Joe Aiello, a morning DJ on 92 CitiFM. Aiello, who is an avid curler and supporter of the game lost his wife to cancer last month.
“At our Awards Celebration, we passed the hat, and when I got it back, there was over $500 in it,” says Brommell. “With all the proceeds going to support cancer research and programs in Manitoba, people like the Lorette Curling Club curlers are very generous.”
Brommel notes that nearly everyone in the club has been affected by cancer in some way which encouraged the group to support the cause.
