The Corporate 8-Ball Challenge has always been a popular fundraising event, and this year was no exception. Over 150 people descended on Raxx Bar & Grill, Brockville’s newest entertainment complex, for a fun-filled afternoon of pool, games, and good times.
Thirty teams competed this year, with “Legal Kicks with Sticks” from Preston Lawyers; comprised of Kevin Preston, Mickey Severson, George Leblanc, Bud Kerton, and Steve Watkins; taking home the championship trophy. Second place belonged to “the Psycho Tropics” from Royal Ottawa Mental Health Group, and the Skinny’s Masonry team “Skinny’s Slayers” rounded out the top three.
With last minute donations from Ludlow Technical Products and event host Raxx, the final tally on the day was $22,700. Our deepest thanks to event sponsor Pricedex Software, event host Raxx Bar & Grill, the event volunteers, and all the pool players who came out to have fun and raise money for United Way!
