In December 2021, the B’nai Brith family lost a friend, a team mate and a brother. Mark Dulberg was an active member of the Toronto Jewish community. He loved the community and was especially active in the B’nai Brith softball leagues, where, following in his father and uncle’s footsteps, he became a stalwart.
Mark’s tragic passing has left a gaping hole in the lives of those who knew him – of course, none more so than his loving family. We
have decided to honour Mark by bringing the community together for an afternoon of softball, food, and fun in the sun called Mark Dulberg’s Day of Dingers. Please support this worthy event in Mark’s memory.
May Mark’s memory be a blessing.
Registration for Mark Dulberg’s Day of Dingers: Sports Tournament and Family Fun Day!
