Thank you again to everyone for supporting our cause by purchasing the 50/50 tickets.
OUR 16 YEAR TOTAL IS NOW $104,342
On Sunday, September 11th, seventy-four anglers from throughout Ontario competed in the 16th annual MacDonald Turkey Point Marina Charity Bass Tournament benefiting the London Children’s Health Foundation. The winners were Joslyn Leung and son Russell Leung with a total weight of 15.30 pounds with 5 large mouth bass. It was Russell’s first time fishing in the tournament – great job! Darren Jacko and Brad Remington took home the big fish prize with a large mouth bass weighing in at 4.65 lbs. Thank you to all participants in this year’s tournament, the sponsors, the volunteers, and all patrons who purchased 50/50 contest tickets. Thanks also goes to Jason Barnucz for being our weigh-master and to the Hamilton Bassmasters for their generous donation of the scales.
Big thanks to Kyle Kichler for organizing the charity Thunder Run and donating to our charity and thanks to all patrons who joined us Labour Day Sunday to listen to the great local band Route 6. Your donations were greatly appreciated. It’s your generosity that makes our London Children’s Health Foundation charity campaign such a great success. This year’s events raised $8,300. Our 16 year donation total is now $104,342. This will truly help the 1,100 children from Norfolk and Oxford counties who use the hospital each year.
On behalf of the Thomson family and all MacDonald Turkey Point Marina staff, thank you for all your support and we look forward to next year’s events.
Brad Thomson, General Manager

Brad is pleased to announce that 50/50 Contest Tickets for the London Children’s Health Foundation are now available for sale in the marina office. We will also be touring around the marina on the golf cart selling them on weekends during the summer.
This will be a one-time 50/50 draw that takes place at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 11th during the weigh-in of the 16th Annual London Children’s Health Foundation Bass Tournament in front of Turkey Vegas.
It is our goal to reach the $100,000 total donation mark this year with your generous and continued support from the past 15 years, so please buy your tickets throughout the summer and you could be a winner just like the 1,600 children from Norfolk County that use the services of the London Children’s Hospital each year.
Our 15th annual fundraising season ended with our Annual Charity Bass Tournament that took place on September 13, 2015. Thank you to all of our sponsors, competitors, volunteers and marina supporters who helped raise $10,200 this year for the London Children's Health Foundation, and thank you to everyone who's been involved over the past 15 years as we've raised a total of $96,242. The London Children's Hospital cares for more than 1,100 children from Norfolk and Oxford Counties each year from 80,000 who visit province-wide. Brad Thomson, the Thomson family and everyone at MacDonald Turkey Point Marina appreciate all your support. We look forward to working with everyone again in the future.
The 2016 London Children's Health Foundation Charity Bass Tournament takes place on Sunday, September 11, 2016. Remember, a child's health is the greatest gift. Let's keep "Fishing for a Cause".
