3rd Annual Two-Bit Auction a Success
Date Posted: 2014-mar-01
Our Third Annual Two-Bit Auction was held on Thursday, February 27th at the Columbus Centre. The event was a great success with the energy and laughter in the room being indicators of the fun people were having. Thanks to our presenting sponsor Canadian Tire, and the support of many local businesses and individuals, the sell out crowd of 225 people had some fantastic prize baskets to bid on. Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped make our 3rd Annual Two-Bit Auction a success. Start saving those quarters for our 4th Annual Two-Bit Auction to be held in February of 2015.

Another successful tournament was held at Centennial Golf Course with close to 80 golfers taking to the links. Playing through some on and off rain showers, at the end of the day three teams finished atop the leader board with a score of 6 under par.

Runners-up included the teams of Al Law, Murray Uhyrnik, Russ Murphy & Doug Colbon; and Dave Hamlin, Dave Lushney, Steve Eaton, Mike Nurse & Steve Gibson.
