CORN­WALL, On­tario - The 31st an­nual Corn­wall Real Es­tate Board Golf tour­na­ment kicked off Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon at the Corn­wall Golf and Coun­try Club.

Every year, the event sup­ports a lo­cal char­ity or­ga­ni­za­tion. The money raised this year went to the Kins­men Club of Corn­wall to help sup­port their many phi­lan­thropy projects in the com­mu­nity.

Money raised for the Kins­men came prin­ci­pally from the silent auc­tion held at the event and from the spon­sor­ship of var­i­ous holes on the course by lo­cal busi­nesses.

Last year’s event saw $12,000 raised in to­tal. The Des­jardins Group has pledged to match this year’s to­tal up to $5,000.

There were nine­teen teams, 76 real- es­tate agents and golfers in all par­tic­i­pat­ing.

“It is a great time for real es­tate agents to net­work with sup­pli­ers and other real es­tate peo­ple,” said Bill Shields, Chair of the Real Es­tate Board Events Com­mit­tee.

“Ev­ery­one is out here to have fun, and what bet­ter way to raise money than by hav­ing fun while do­ing it,” said Shields.
