PBC Presents…

 Performance B​oat C​lub of Canada R​aises $20,000 for Camp Oochigeas!  

The Performance Boat Club of Canada kicked off their charity poker run season this past weekend in Muskoka, Ontario, which was sponsored by Birchpoint Marina and All Ontario Recycling.​

The weather forecast was iffy, but boaters woke up to a beautiful sunny day and a calm lake. Twenty-five ​boats participated in the run that took them from Lake Muskoka through the locks in Port Carling, ​up to Cleveland’s House for lunch on Lake Joseph.

The club was fundraising for camp Oochigeas, which is a camp for kids with cancer with locations in Muskoka and southern Ontario. A camp like this has special requirements, and the cost to send a kid to camp is a little higher than an average camp.

“Our goal was to raise $10,000 which would allow the organization to send at least two kids to camp,” says Meghan Brousseau, club president. “However, as I have said before and I’ll say it again, our members are some of the most generous people you’ll  meet and and I am thrilled to report that we exceeded that goal and are donating $20,000 to the camp!”

Teya Vitko, Development Coordinator, Events for Camp Ooch was on hand for the event and had​ this to say “I was pleased by the warmth and genuineness of The Performance Boat Club community. Their effort to make positive change in their community for an incredible cause is strong and apparent. Thank you Performance Boat Club Events Inc. for supporting Camp Ooch and for helping us send more kids with cancer to Camp.”​

​Everyone had a great day and the driver’s with the best hands included: ​Sam Maye, 42 Fountain​ (third best hand); Kevin Primmer​, 42 Statement (second best hand) and new member Miguel Mendes, 36 Nor-tech Supercat (best hand).  Hard luck went to Ryan and Dawn Braks and their 24 Velocity.

​The next fundraiser for the boat club is the Georgian Bay ‘Blast Around the Bay’ $100 fun run benefiting the Georgian Bay ​Hospital Association the weekend of July 7, 2017.  More info here: http://www.performanceboatclub.ca/georgian-bay-july-7-9/
