Thank you for celebrating CNIB Lake Joe’s 60th Anniversary Weekend with us!

Surrounded by friends and family on the beautiful shores of Lake Joseph in Muskoka, it was the perfect way to celebrate CNIB Lake Joe’s 60th Anniversary Weekend – in style!

Thanks to your amazing participation and support, CNIB Lake Joe’s 60th Anniversary weekend raised a grand total of $370,000 for CNIB Lake Joe's capital redevelopment campaign!

This funding enables us to purchase adaptive sports and independent living skills equipment for a new multi-purpose recreation and learning facility at CNIB Lake Joe! Included in this total, the CNIB Muskoka Dock-to-Dock: Poker Run event and its 50/50 raffle raised over $130,000 (net) to date. 

  • More than 250 donors, sponsors, participants, and volunteers came together to make the event a great success.
  • We were thrilled to be joined by celebrity hosts Joan Kelley Walker (returning emcee), Rod Black, and Ben Mulroney!
  • A huge thank you to the mighty, unstoppable team of Nancy Simonot (Co-Chair), Helen Hunt (Co-Chair), Tracey Burton, Tom Cross, Anthony Domenici, and the Antique and Classic Boat Society-Toronto for organizing another successful annual CNIB Muskoka event!
