Viamede Resort, a 125 year-old landmark on the shores of beautiful Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas, has announced that its Annual Father’s Day In-Water Boat Show will run in support of Big Brothers of Peterborough.

Viamede Resort (, a historic resort located on Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas, is continuing its annual tradition of hosting an in-water boat show for Father's Day on Sunday, June 17, 2012. The event, running as a fundraiser in support of the Big Brothers of Peterborough, will feature displays of boats and other marine toys from several local businesses, as well as Viamede's famous Father's Day BBQ.

“Paris Marine, Town & Country Marine and Buckeye Marine are all lined up to help us feature an assortment of boats for all budgets, giving fathers an opportunity to compare,” says Ben Sämann, Owner and General Manager of Viamede. “NorthStar Marine Insurance will be on site as well, with a welcome perspective on insurance concerns often overlooked by first-time boat owners.”

“All of the fun down by the water will be complimented by a delicious BBQ lunch created by Chef Ken Van Mackelbergh and his team,” Sämann adds. “We’ll once again be working around the clock to bring participants a delectable array of treats, from homemade burgers to cookies & pies made in-house.”

Proceeds from the afternoon will donated by Viamede Resort to Big Brothers of Peterborough, an agency that offers a wide variety of mentoring programs to young boys aged 6-16. “Big Brothers is a great organization that we are very proud to support,” says Sämann. “It is all about kids gaining confidence and acquiring important life skills through mentorship. I can’t think of better agency to benefit on Father’s Day.”
