Youth big tour­ney win­ners

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

The Stor­mont-Dun­das-Glen­garry On­tario Provin­cial Po­lice Golf Tour­na­ment com­mit­tee handed out a to­tal of $22,750 to Glen­garry youth pro­grams, dis­tribut­ing some of the $40,000 raised at the event held in Lan­caster.

The re­main­der of the funds col­lected have been re­served for ini­tia­tives tak­ing place in 2018.

Six or­ga­ni­za­tions re­ceived do­na­tions this year.

The Jump­start Foun­da­tion re­ceived $4,000. The lo­cal chap­ter works closely with the Alexan­dria Cana­dian Tire store in pro­vid­ing fund­ing for area youth re­quir­ing as­sis­tance to par­tic­i­pate in sports pro­grams. Store owner Den­nis Tal­lon stepped up to the plate and matched the funds raised, bring­ing the grand to­tal to $8,000.

Le Cen­tre cul­turel Les trois p’tits points, or­ga­nizer of the Con­cours de tal­ents de l’Est on­tarien, re­ceived $4,000.

The same sum was pre­sented to the Glen­garry In­ter-Agency Group Youth Pro­gram in Alexan­dria.

Le Club Riche­lieu d’Alexan­dria has re­ceived $4,000 to con­tinue its Pour le plaisir de l’art/Art for Joy pro­gram which pro­vides fund­ing so young peo­ple can par­take in artis­tic pro­grams. The Snow­suit Fund or­ga­nized by em­ploy­ees of La Caisse pop­u­laire de la Val­lée has got a $2,000 boost.

The tour­na­ment com­mit­tee chipped in $750 for the Glen­garry Golf and Coun­try Club Ju­nior Pro­gram. The com­mit­tee con­sists of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the OPP, the Cen­tre de santé com­mu­nau­taire de l'Estrie (CSCE), Le Cen­tre cul­turel Les trois p’tits points, Le Club Riche­lieu d’Alexan­dria, Glen­garry In­ter-Agency Group (GIAG) and l'Equipe psy­cho-so­ciale (EPS). For sev­eral years, the tour­na­ment's ma­jor spon­sor has been Caisse pop­u­laire de la Val­lée.
