Manitoba Music and Manitoba Film & Music are pleased to announce that Asham Curling, the international leader in premium curling supplies and accessories, has come on as this year's Bonspiel Sponsor for the Manitoba Music Rocks Charity Bonspiel.
A longtime supporter of the annual event, Asham is set to help Manitoba’s music community raise funds for the Kevin Walters Memorial Fund at the eighth annual bonspiel, which will take place at the Granite Curling Club on February 10, 2018.
Other sponsors stepping up to support this year's bonspiel include Half Pints Brewing Co., Special T Shirt Company, ACTRA RACS, FYI Music News, On Screen Manitoba, True North Sports & Entertainment, Guppy Graphic Design, The JUNO Awards, Killbeat Music, Long & McQuade, MOSMA | Mid-Ocean School of Media Arts, Jen Doerksen Photography, J.Senft Photography, Parlour Coffee, BreakOut West, Le 100 Nons, HUB Insurance, Mighty Cypress Talent, Pipe & Hat Music Group, and POP Entertainment & Management.
The event will bring the province's vibrant music community together to raise funds and awareness for the Kevin Walters Memorial Fund—a charity that honours Walters' memory through financial support for promising performers and organizations in music, film, performance and the creative arts. Walters, who passed away in 2014, had very close ties with Manitoba Music, Manitoba Film & Music, and the larger music industry. Over 120 curlers rocked last year's event, raising over $4,200 for the Fund.
“The generous support of sponsors makes this event possible," says Sean McManus, Manitoba Music's executive director. "We're very grateful to Asham and all of these companies for supporting Kevin’s legacy and helping us bring our community together."
Registration for the 2018 Manitoba Music Rocks Charity Bonspiel is open at manitobamusic.com/curling and people of all skill levels are welcome to join in the fun and curl for a cause.
