Maple Leaf Marinas pumps $10,000 for GBGH
To celebrate the Civic Holiday weekend in August, five local marinas – Bay Port Yachting Centre, Beacon Bay, Paragon, South Bay Cove and Wye Heritage – donated ten cents for every litre of fuel sold to the Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation.
By the end of the weekend, the five had almost achieved 100,000 litres and would have if Mother Nature hadn’t rained on the parade. The event was still an amazing success, thanks to 85,593 litres of fuel sold for a total of $8,593, plus a donation of $600 from an anonymous boater and an additional $1,407 donation from Dave Rozycki, president of Maple Leaf Marinas.
