Annual golf fundraiser to take place this month

June 9, 2017 by  

The 2017 charity golf classic will be held this month, in support of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of St. Catharines.

Each $250 ticket includes:

– 18 holes of golf, including a golf cart and unlimited use of the driving range
– A barbecue lunch at the Peninsula Lakes Golf Club in Pelham
– A gourmet dinner at Coppola’s Restaurant in St. Catharines
– A silent auction and prize raffle

Last year’s fundraiser generated over $38,000 in support of the Game On Program. A total of $650 per child is needed to provide nutritious snacks and activities, plus the recruitment and training of the volunteers who make this program possible.

It is estimated that demand for the program increases every year by 5%. The program does not receive any government funding and each year it is fully financed by the generous donations and contributions from event sponsors.

There are multiple sponsorship opportunities available, including a prize donation option, as well as packages ranging in price from $250 to $5,000. A print company may be used to produce signs, flyers and programs for this event.

The charity golf classic will be held on Friday June 23rd, from 12:30pm to 10:30pm.

The work at the Niagara branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters is ongoing. Mentors for boys and girls ages 12-14 are always needed and are encouraged to contact the charity.
