The South Burlington Rotary Club is once again collaborating with Howard Center to host the 11th Annual Curling Challenge fundraiser March 14 at Cairns Arena, 599 Swift Street. A portion of the funds raised from the bonspiel will be used to support Howard Center programs that help individuals and families with mental health, substance use and developmental disabilities.

“We are thrilled to be working again with the South Burlington Rotary Club,” said Denise Vignoe, Howard Center director of development and communications. “It’s a wonderful partnership and we are grateful to have their support to raise funds for Howard Center and other Rotary service projects in our community.”

Registration for the 2020 Curling Challenge began Jan. 15. As in past years, the Green Mountain Curling Club, with assistance from the Rutland Rocks Curling Club, will provide instruction and equipment for 32 teams of four.

Teams of friends, family or co-workers are encouraged to sign up. Visit to register or donate to a favorite team.

“We look forward to working with Howard Center and the Green Mountain Curling Club,” said

South Burlington Rotary Club President Kyle Nicholls.

The Howard Center is Vermont’s largest social service organization. In collaboration with hundreds of community partners, Howard Center’s 1,600 staff members help more than 16,000 people each year in over 60 locations throughout Vermont.

“The South Burlington Rotary Club is pleased to support Howard Center’s mission and the work it does for our community,” added Nicholls.
