Curl For A Cause Raises $40,000 For Lunenburg Hospital

Some weary eyes around Lunenburg County after a three day curling marathon helped raise money for Fishermen's Memorial Hospital. The 14th annual 'Curl for a Cause' raised just over $40,000 to help purchase a specialized procedural operating room table. Over 60 people participated in the event at the Lunenburg Curling Club. Managing Director of the Health Services Foundation on the South Shore, Arleen Stevens, says it was a team effort.

The table costs roughly $51,000. Stevens says they're partnering with a community group to help raise the remaining funds.
