The Canal Bank Shuffle has donated over $115,000 to local charities.
This year we made three donations to the following groups:

The Canal Bank Shuffle committee (CBSC) donated $8,000 to the Thorold Community Activities Group (TCAG) on Friday evening. The money came from proceeds of October's 9th Annual Canal Bank Shuffle Blues festival held each year in Thorold. Pictured (l-) are Dave Rotz and Sue Knudsen CBSC, Kathleen Kelly and Karen Blackley (TCAG Board), and John Davis CBSC. --- The Canal Bank Shuffle Committee (CBSC) is once again sponsoring two Canadian Blues bands to travel to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge held in February. This year the Shuffle committee is sponsoring Hamilton's Harrison Kennedy in the solo category and Toronto's David Rotundo band in the group category. Pictured (front l-r) are Dave Rotz, Sue Knudsen, Marian Yedinak (CBSC), Rotundo, Kennedy, and CBSC Chair Tim Sinnett. Back row (l-r) are Bill Yedinak, John Davis, Brian McCormack and Bob Liddycoat all of the CBSC. Kennedy received a cheque from the CBSC for $1,000 and the Rotundo band received $3,000. (Absent were Rudy Walters and John O'Brien).
