Due to the overwhelming support for our 2013 Fundraiser event, Excalibur Crossbow Inc, has decided to make their charity drive an annual event. Excalibur is proud to announce that the first official Charity Event will be held in conjunction with the 2014 BooFest Crossbow Extravaganza hosted by Don Katsumi of Boo Custom Strings.
Each year, a different charity will be selected and all funds raised will be donated to that cause.
Regretfully, the Canadian shooting Sports industry lost one of our own on August 15th 2013 when our good friend Nick Manioudakis from Stoeger Canada passed away. Nick was 39 years old, well known and highly respected in the shooting Sports Industry. All funds raised will be donated to a trust fund in the name of his two children. The 2014 Charity Event will take place July 26th 2014 at BooFest. Details of the event and auction items will be posted on the Excalibur Crossbow Forum.
A Trust Fund has been created to assist with his children’s future University or College education. Anyone who would like to honour Nick’s lasting contributions to our Sport, may certainly do so by helping his kids. Donations to the fund are accepted by cheques made payable to Mary Balis-Manioudakis “In Trust” and should be mailed directly to Don Katsum: 1203 Broadview Ave, Toronto, ON, M4K 2T1.
In appreciation for your support, for every $20.00 donated, you will be issued a ticket that will be entered into the draw for one of the top 5 featured prizes! Deadline for accepting donations is July 5th, 2014.
“Excalibur is fortunate to have the most loyal and supportive customers and we’re proud to be a part of an industry that cares about their community. Excalibur is honored and excited at the opportunity to organize and host a charity event that can make a difference in someone’s life”.
