We at Cooks Bay Marina are proud sponsors of the Gilford Soup Contest in support of Sleeping Children Around the World at the Gilford Community Hall.

Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW) is a Canadian organization that provides bed kits for children typically living in underdeveloped and developing nations. A bedkit includes a mattress/bedding, a mosquito net, school bag and supplies, and clothing and footwear. SCAW believes every child deserves a good night’s sleep.

The Gilford Soup Contest (organized by the Gilford United Church) is entering its sixth year and the church has been fundraising for this organization for 17 years. In that time they have provided 410 bedkits. Cooks Bay Marina is excited to be this year’s Golden Ladle Sponsor and will handing out the award at the end of the contest!

The contest begins at noon today and goes until 2pm. Come on out and support a great cause, try some delicious soup, and meet our team.
