Started in 2010, the HowardCenter Curling Challenge has generated enthusiasm for the sport of curling and for the event itself. On March 16, with support from the Green Mountain Curling Club, thirty-two four-person teams competed for the top prizes. This year’s Gold Medal team was ‘Choose Blue ‘ from BlueCross BlueShield of VT.
Offering their support as presenting sponsors of the 2013 event were Tech Group and Tech Vault of South Burlington. Steve Loyer, and business partner Jay Fayette, both South Burlington residents, are enthusiastic about wanting to support their community and have established affiliations with several area groups. “We recognize these missions are important, and as a company we want to give back” said Loyer.
Funds raised from this year’s event will help support the Community Friends Mentoring program which matches children with caring adults, provides camp scholarships for individuals with a developmental disability, and provides therapeutic outlets of expression for mentally ill adults.
