What a fantastic day! The skies tried to rain on our fun again this year, but the players showed up and were ready to roll, rain or shine!
We have so many people and companies to thank, including Joe Aiello, for his help in raising funds for the Grace Hospital Foundation! It is always a pleasure to work with his ever so kind heart!
Each and every one of our players continued their support of the event and braved the weather on arrival, still showing up with determination be the tournament champs! Speaking of which – the tournament finals saw a showdown between The Patill St. James Bocce’ Posse’, and the Bocce Pact (made up of staff members of the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre).. and the Bocce Pact were victorious! 🏆
Gracious thanks to all of our sponsors who made the day possible:

- Wojcik’s Funeral Home for sponsoring the tunes,
- WETT Sales and Distribution for supplying the exciting beverages,
- Food Fare for feeding the hungry crowd,
