$38,000 for youth
Almost $40,000 was raised in the recent Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police 14th Annual Golf Tournament at the Heritage Golf Club in Lancaster.
With the support of several businesses, sponsors, participants, volunteers and a generous anonymous donation of $25,000, this year's event raised over $38,000.
All monies raised over the years has benefited youth initiatives in Glengarry County.
In partnership with the Caisse populaire de la Vallée (CPV), Centre de santé communautaire de l'Estrie (CSCE), Le Centre Culturel les Trois Ptits Points, Équipe psycho-sociale (EPS) and the Richelieu Club of Alexandria, SD&G OPP hosted 130 golfers.
This year's recipients are the Jumpstart Foundation, North Glengarry Youth Centre (Glengarry Inter-Agency Group), Le Centre Culturel Les Trois Ptits Points (Concours de talent Est Ontario), Richelieu Club's ART for Joy and the Snowsuit Project organized by Caisse populaire de la Vallée employees.
Detachment Commander, Inspector Mike Mulhearn, commented on the continued success of the fundraiser: “SD&G OPP is proud to be associated with such community-minded individuals who support this event every year! What better population to invest in than our youth - our future leaders?”
