$15,000 raised at golf tour­na­ment

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The 13th Ma­gog Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil golf Tour­na­ment was held last Fri­day at the Venise Golf Club. In to­tal, 215 golfers teed up and more than 300 peo­ple at­tended the din­ner. $15,000 was raised this year and will be dis­trib­uted to five lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

“We are, once again, very sat­is­fied with the re­sults of this ben­e­fit tour­na­ment. Even if this is not our first event, each new edi­tion brings with it new chal­lenges. This year, we knew that five or­ga­ni­za­tions in­stead of three would ben­e­fit from the money raised. This mo­ti­vated us to re­dou­ble our ef­forts to get lots of peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate,” ex­plained Ma­gog’s mayor, Vicki May Hamm. “I’m proud to be able to count on peo­ple from the area to par­tic­i­pate in this tour­na­ment which is al­ways fun. Even with the fresh­ness of Septem­ber, ev­ery­one had a good time and many left with one of the nu­mer­ous prizes that were won dur­ing the sup­per.”

Those or­ga­ni­za­tions that will ben­e­fit from the funds raised this year are the AQDR Mem­phrem­a­gog, Cuisines Col­lec­tives Bouchée Dou­ble, the Fon­da­tion Chris­tian Va­chon of the Villa Pier­rot and the Mem­phrem­a­gog food bank.
