Team Binstock/Reader Olympic Fundraiser

Hey everyone!

As you may know, the London 2012 Olympic Games are just around the corner and I was able to meet a couple aspiring beach volleyball players who are on their journey to hopefully qualify to compete on behalf of Canada.

Josh Binstock and Martin Reader held a fundraiser on March 9th to raise money in support of their dream. Their "Beach Ball" was held at Toronto's downtown Spoke Club and featured special guests (three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Marnie McBean and CityTV personalities Tracy Moore and Mary Kitchen), a silent auction, prize giveaways and even a bachelor auction. Josh Binstock, Martin Reader, and Olympic swimmer Tobias Oriwol were the eligible bachelors of the evening.
