International Dragon Boats for the Cure 2010

Dragon Boats for the Cure, Windsor ON

News from the Deep South in the Windsor/Essex area of Ontario. A couple weeks ago Molson Coors Canada was the proud beer sponsor of the International Dragon Boats for the Cure event held yearly at Tecumseh’s Waterfront Park. Over 150 teams of 20 rowers paddled to  raise funds for local hospitals to fight cancer. The Festival has donated over $1.3 Million since it began 7 years ago!

Molson’s sales rep for the area was also on hand to present a $5,000 donation from the Molson Coors Donations Fund which supported the construction of a Memorial Dragon (above) in Tecumseh’s Memorial Park.

Total funds raised from this year’s festival are still being tallied.  Will update when we get the numbers.  Cheers!
