Broomfitters is proud to announce that the proceeds from the Grand National Curling Club's new club shop resulted in a $1,735 donation to RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual abuse organization

The Grand National Curling Club is a non-profit organization that promotes the sport of curling in the United States. It was founded in 1867 and is the oldest curling organization in the country. The organization has a long history of supporting charitable causes, and this donation to RAINN is just the latest example of its commitment to giving back to the community.

RAINN provides support to survivors of sexual assault and works to prevent sexual violence. The organization operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline, which provides free, confidential support to survivors 24/7. RAINN also works to improve public policy and raise awareness about sexual violence.

"We are proud to support RAINN and the important work they do," said Than Tibbetts, owner of Broomfitters. "We believe it is important to do our part to help sexual abuse survivors and prevent future incidents. We are grateful to GNCC members who have made this donation possible."

The Grand National Curling Club partnered with Broomfitters in 2022 to help the GNCC build a line of merchandise through the club shop program. A portion of the proceeds from each sale going forward will help support the organization's charitable efforts.


Built in Brooklyn, Broomfitters was born out of a need to bring curling brooms and equipment to New York City's only curling club.

What began as necessity became a drive to bring new life to an old, familiar tradition. Now shipping to three continents, Broomfitters works to keep the spirit of curling alive and well with fresh designs and a full selection of curling equipment — from brooms to shoes and everything in between.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, y in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.


The Grand National Curling Club (GNCC) started in 1867 and was the National Governing Body of curling in the United States until 1958. Today, the GNCC's mission is to serve our membership, including approximately 6,000 curlers, with programs and support to grow and advance the sport of curling together.
