Community Living raises over $17,000 at tourney
Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley held its 21st Annual Golf Tournament at the Oaks of Cobden on Friday, August 18. Final calculations report this year’s tournament netted over $17,000. Over 110 golfers hit the greens and completed 18 holes of golf. The winning team this year came from 104.9 MyFM and Grade A IT Services’ team, with the following players: Andrew Dick and Matt Forrest from MyFM, and Daniel Tomka from Grade A. The Most Honest Team was Buske Office Equipment.
Community Living would like to thank its corporate sponsors namely Speedpro Signs, Ashley Homestore Select and a double corporate sponsorship from Prince Plowing & Landscape Services. Our dinner sponsors this year were Hoffman’s Auto Body, Bennett Electric, SRB Technologies, Arthur J. Gallagher (Steve Thompson), Arthur J. Gallagher (Louise McConnell) and law firm Hicks Morley. In addition, we had 57 hole sponsors and many prize donations. EGM Insurance sponsored the $10,000 Hole in One – however, no one collected the prize!
Community Living wishes to thank everyone in the Upper
Ottawa Valley who contributed, including all of the golfers who bring the excitement and camaraderie each and every year. Many thanks to those who came out to volunteer their time and efforts to assist us in running a smooth and fantastic tournament. A special thank you to Gerry Mansveld, tournament chairman for the past 15 years who is stepping down this year. We will miss Gerry and hope he will return to golf and share his expertise with next year’s golf committee.
