On April 13th, Pernet Family Health Service, Worcester-based family support organization, put on its inaugural Pernet Cup Curling Challenge at the Worcester Ice Center. This curling tournament was a fundraiser for Pernet’s programs. All funds raised went directly to Pernet’s programs: Early Intervention, Family Support Services, Maternal, and Child Nursing, and Family and Community Development Programs. Over 75 individuals competed on 12 teams for the Pernet Cup, for most of these players it was their first time curling! The success of this event was made possible by its sponsors and 44 volunteers from Pernet Family Health Service’s Board, the Petersham Curling Club, Marlborough Curling Club, and Blackstone Curling Club.
