Just in time for the Holidays… the 2017 Edition of the Inspired Boating Fundraising Calendar in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.  

Each year the popularity of this program continues to grow.  We hope the Boating Community will once again rally around this fundraising project by ordering their copy and support this wonderful cause.  Net proceeds from this fundraiser go directly to Children’s Wish to assist in the granting of wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.  These calendars are also a great gift idea for the boater(s) in your family.
