Muskoka, Ontario (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort (http://www.portcunnington.com), a traditional full-service Muskoka resort located on beautiful Lake of Bays, is committed to giving back and helping the local Muskoka community. Once again, the Lake of Bays lodge & resort will be hosting a number of fund-raising events this summer, and continues to lend its support to several worthwhile causes and organizations in the Muskoka area by providing donations and sponsorships.
This summer, Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort will once again take its turn as host of the annual Anglican Church Regatta. This fun-filled family event attracts hundreds of spectators and competitors, including local resorts whose staff and guests compete against each other in friendly rivalry. Organized events include swimming races for all age groups, a variety of canoe races – including events like the “Crab” race, the war canoe race, and the very popular three-generation race. Along with the many water-based competitions, there is also a bake sale, kid’s games, BBQ, a silent auction and raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses. Now in its 91st-year, the Anglican Church Regatta is a major fundraiser for St. John in the Woods Anglican Church, a Lake of Bay fixture since 1902. The event takes place at Port Cunnington Lodge on Wednesday, August 13th, starting at 11:00 am with the Bishop’s Cup Canoe Race which is a long distance race around Bigwin Island and Pancake Island on Lake of Bays.
Another fund-raising event in the Lake of Bays area that Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort is proud to host again this summer is the annual Andrew Daniels Fish Fry, in support of the Andrew Daniels Fish Stewardship Program. Slated for Tuesday, July 8th, from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort, guests at the Andrew Daniels Fish Fry are treated to a bunch of fish, beef on a bun, salads, desserts and a cash bar. There will also be door prizes and a silent auction. Tickets for the fish fry are $35. The Andrew Daniels Fish Stewardship Program is dedicated to protecting and improving fish habitat, fish regeneration, water quality and shoreline stability on Lake of Bays.
“Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort is pleased to be giving back to the local community. We are proud of our long tradition of offering assistance wherever and whenever we can,” states Innkeeper Kim Loader. “Along with hosting many local fundraising events, we also provide sponsorships and make donations to many Muskoka charities and organizations, like local charity golf tournaments. The Breast Cancer Society Tournament held at Deerhurst; the Alzheimer Society Tournament at Bigwin Island, with hosts Rod Black and Ken Shaw; and the Resorts of Ontario Preferred Suppliers Golf Tournament, which supports Camp Trillium - a camp for kids with cancer, are just a few of the golf tournaments that we support. We have also made a donation to the Shania Kids Program to help build a new classroom at the local Irwin Memorial Public School, and we have made a commitment to help with the proposed Nurse Practitioner Station in Dorset. These are just some of the causes we support,” says Loader.
