Woodbine Cares Charity Contest – Conservation Halton Foundation

On Saturday, September 16th, CharitableWager.com will host the 2017 Woodbine Cares handicapping contests in which players pledge to donate 25 CAD to charity. Contestants in the 2017 Woodbine Cares Contest will choose from the Woodbine Cares approved charities for which to play. Woodbine Entertainment Group has agreed to seed the Donation Pool with $100 donation to charity selected by the contest winner.

The roster of potential charity beneficiaries includes Conservation Halton Foundation. Conservation Halton works to protect, restore and manage natural resources in your watershed from lake to escarpment. Their vision is to sustain a healthy watershed with clean streams, vigorous forests, abundant green space and balanced growth that results in strong livable communities. Woodbine Entertainment’s contribution to the Conservation Halton Foundation has helped purchase and permanently conserve 25 acres of natural land in north Burlington that provides habitat for many species and links to the Bruce Trail, build the new Deer Clan longhouse at Crawford Lake Conservation Area, support the Halton Conservation Stewardship Program, and teach over 5,000 Halton-area students about the importance of forests and waterways in the community.
