The funds were raised through a fundraiser held during the Castor Curling Club’s men’s bonspiel. Nutrien had sponsored four jackets for the team that accrued the most points per end played. Teams were required to pay $40 per team to be considered for the contest, and 16 of 19 teams participated with the Northey rink of Forestberg winning the jackets. Funds raised were collected by the Castor Curling Club, and the proceeds were split between them (former club treasuer Janet Davis (middle left) and new club treasure Crystal Smith (left) were on hand for the presentation) and the Castor foodbank.
