Raffle Supports Youth Curling Development

The Optimist Clubs of British Columbia in partnership with Curl BC are offering a $5,000 cash prize in a raffle to support youth curling development.  There also will be ten $500 prizes.

Tickets cost $20 each and are available from your local Optimist Club or your local curling club. Only 2,000 tickets will be sold.

The Optimist-Curl BC Junior Curling Raffle also supports:

  • Coaches of youth curling teams across the province to become Competition Coach Certified;
  • 2018 Optimist BC U18 Curling Championships;
