After taking a break due to COVID-19, the Sudbury Manitoulin Children’s Foundation’s

(SMCF) Curling Funspeil is returning. 

This year’s event will be hosted at the Copper Cliff Curling Club on March 26. The doors open at 5 p.m., with prizes and auction items available. 

Three Shades of Grey will play live music for the evening. The costs for a team of four players is $160, or $40 per individual. You might still be able to register a team by calling the office at 705-673-2227 or email Anne at anne@smcf.com.

The SMCF was founded in 1976 as a registered charitable organization. SMCF’s mission is to provide programs and services that benefit children, youth and families requiring their assistance.

The SMCF operates three programs for marginalized youth: the Send-A-Kid-To-Camp Program, the Bursary Program, and the PLAY Program.

Established in 1984, the Send-A-Kid-To-Camp program is an initiative that provides deserving children between the ages of 5 and 14 with the opportunity to attend summer camp.

Since its initiation in 2003, the bursary program has awarded more than 100 bursaries with a total value of over $150,000. To date, all applicants have been awarded a bursary and, in some cases, the applicant’s entire tuition has been paid. 

The PLAY Program was introduced in 2021. PLAY stands for Positive Leisure Activity for Youth and was created to remove barriers which prevent marginalized children from attending the sports, leisure, or arts activity of their choice. Children who are eligible for the program can receive up to $250 per seasonal application. The seasonal disbursements are summer, fall, and winter.
