(TCAA) did their part to aid Canada’s national teams on their road to

The remaining $2,679.55 from the TCAA tournament was well-spent – it was
donated to Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank, which gathers, recycles and
redistributes equipment at no cost to those kids who would otherwise be
denied the opportunity to participate.
