On Wednesday November 2, 2016 MacDonald Turkey Point Marina presented a cheque for $8,300 to the London Children’s Health Foundation.  On hand for the cheque presentation from left to right were Ben Bright, Victoria Bright of the London Children’s Health Foundation, Brad Thomson General Manager, Norfolk County Mayor Charlie Luke, Danny MacDonald President and Norfolk County Councilor Jim Oliver.  Our 16th annual Children’s Health Foundation Bass Tournament took place on Sunday, September 11th with 74 competitors participating.  Thank you to all our sponsors, competitors, volunteers and marina supporters who have supported us over the past 16 years and helped us once again raise funds for this great cause. 
Our 16 year total surpassed the $100,000 mark, reaching a total of $104,342.  With this milestone donation, Brad Thomson and Danny MacDonald were presented with a framed painting done by one of the children who had been a patient at the hospital.  The London Children’s Hospital cares for more than 1,100 children from Norfolk and Oxford counties each year.  Brad Thomson, The Thomson Family and everyone at MacDonald Turkey Point Marina are very grateful for your support.  As well, in memory of his great-niece Madison Thomson, Brad and his family are especially thankful to the London Children’s Hospital for the care she received during her many visits to the hospital.  Their kindness will always be appreciated.

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.
