SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY

Every year, the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby Committee comes together to host one of the biggest events in Lac du Bonnet. The Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby is a Non-profit Organization raising funds for community groups in Lac du Bonnet and surrounding areas through a fun, family-oriented event that promotes Lac du Bonnet as a four-season playground.

The profits raised from each Derby event are invested into our community through grants, bursaries, and paying a volunteer workforce. To date, $161,707 of funding have been injected into the community.

The Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby Committee is proud that it has been able to help so many great projects over the years. Our funding support has helped over 69 projects in Lac du Bonnet and surrounding communities come to fruition. The Committee has injected funding into the:

  • Centennial School Outdoor Eduction Centre
