Judy Schweitzer ALS Curl for a Cure happens Nov. 12 in Red Deer

Money raised to help those battling the disease

The 2016 Judy Schweitzer ALS Curl for a Cure will be held Nov. 12 in an effort to raise $2,500 for ALS Society of Alberta.

Participants at the seventh annual funspiel can purchase tickets for a 50/50 raffle, as well as join in curling competition.

Curl for a Cure will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Michener Hill Curling Club, at 3910 51A St.

To register contact Carrie Mello at ALScurlforacure@hotmail.ca. To sponsor the funspiel visit www.alsab.ca. Donations will also be accepted at the event.
