Dodge4Diabetes with The Kleinburg Leos — Vaughan
On Aug.16, 2014, the Kleinburg Leo Club held its premier large-scale event — a four-hour dodgeball tournament at Trio Sportsplex — in support of the Canadian Diabetes Association. Five teams of 10 participated to bring awareness to diabetes and the importance of a healthy lifestyle for both diabetics and non-diabetics. In between games, players donned cowboy hats, sunglasses, Hawaiian garlands and other wacky accessories at the photo booth table set up by the club. Some even sported hairbands with cat ears as their uniform, but it was the Mighty Dodgers in Nike headbands who were the best dressed and winning team. At night, about 30 people headed to Kleinburg’s much-loved bakery Dolcini by Joseph for awards and a silent auction filled with prizes ranging from Amado Salon hair products to Telus phone holders. Guests enjoyed a special diabetic dessert from Dolcini by Joseph and hors d’oeuvres from The Doctor’s House. The event raised close to $3,000.
