Fundraising Focus for 2020

posted Oct 12, 2019, 7:41 PM by Robusters Website

The Kootenay Robusters Dragon Boat Team has a special focus for their fundraising this year.  We have leased a small piece of property at the south end of Christina Lake and have big plans for it.

After 20 years of parking our dragon boat, OC6 and safety boat at locations supplied by supportive community members, the team hopes to have a boathouse in place by the end of next season.

To make this happen, we are working on securing grants, contacting past and present members for donations and selling the ever popular Robuster calendars in locations throughout our communities.

As well, we have a raffle underway for a lovely quilt, donated by one of our paddlers, Rae Salkeld, as well as a gift basket and scratch and sniff wreath.

Look for our calendars and buy a couple to support your local dragon boat team as they raise awareness of breast cancer and help local women build strength, fitness and mental health.
