Event Name: Journey for Sight
Description: Journey for Sight, a snowmobile fundraising event, originated in Birtle, Manitoba in 1983. Snowmobile riders from Northern, Central and Southern Manitoba, and most recently, from Northwest Ontario, will typically ride a minimum of 200 kilometers visiting various communities including La Riviere, collecting pledges before a rendezvous in Brandon for the presentation of funds and guest speakers. Riders and crew generously accept cash and cheque gifts of any amount. Donations over $20 are tax deductible. Expenses incurred during the ride are paid by the participant or a sponsoring Lions Club. La Riviere supports this event and hosts a community breakfast with sausage, ham, scrambled eggs, pancakes, hash browns and beverages to raise funds for Lions Eye Bank.
