What We Are

We’re a Pro-Am charity Bonspiel for adults, where celebrity skips – including Provincial, Canadian, World and Olympic Champions – curl with a team of amateur curlers. Since 1989, our passion for curling has helped kids in need.

Why We Do It

It’s for the kids! 100% of the funds raised support kids in crisis through our two preferred charities – locally, the Oakville Hospital Foundation and nationally, the Sandra Schmirler Foundation.

How We Do It

The event kicks off Thursday night with a banquet at the Holiday Inn where you choose your skip.  Curling starts Friday at 11am and continues until Saturday evening.  DJ, Karaoke, Live Music, a Silent Auction and the ever popular Hospitality Suite round out your weekend.

What We’ve Done

In recent years we raised over $662,000 for the Oakville Hospital Foundation and almost $2.9 million has been raised for four different Charities over the past 30 years.  Quite simply, we are making a difference!

Welcome to Kurl For Kids!

Churchill said, “It takes teamwork to make a dream work.” I’m happy to be leading a team of dedicated people that work behind the scenes year round to make this bonspiel great and run smoothly. On behalf of the committee of Ed Avolio, Greg Balsdon, Marylou Bird, John Boyd, Courtney de Winter, Melissa Drewery, Adam Gilbert, Michelle Kerby, Paul Linetsky, Michelle Roach, Cheryl Titus, and myself, Bill Garner, I’d like to welcome you to Kurl for Kids. We run this bonspiel with all of our hearts and we’re excited to have you join us.
