ST. ANDREWS – Students from the community college’s Hospitality and Tourism Management Program hosted “Brooms for the Bay” at the Heather Curling Club Saturday.
As part of their Event Planning course, the Adventure Recreation and Culinary classes organized the “funspiel” to help raise funds and awareness for Save Passamaquoddy Bay – the group opposing any LNG developments in the bay.
The day’s events featured three, four-end games that involved team members rotating their position at the beginning of each end, giving everyone the opportunity to help lead their team to a victory.
Teams not fortunate enough to win their games were required to sing karaoke to their victorious opponents or pay a $2 donation to the Save Passamaquoddy Bay fund. Needless to say, the fund grew on this specific activity.
Between each game, along with the karaoke, the students organized other activities including a Heather “Hot Shots” competition as well as a “WHALE” bingo game for additional entertainment.
The Culinary students also prepared and served a hearty chili along with fresh rolls which helped everyone maintain their energy for the next game. Overall, this one-day charity fundraising event saw the six teams participating raise just over $250 for Save Passamaquoddy Bay.
