Golden Golf Club hosts Community Day for food bank

The Golden Golf Club hosted their annual Community Golf Day on Monday May 27 in support of the Golden Food Bank.

The Golden Golf Club hosted their annual Community Golf Day on Monday May 27 in support of the Golden Food Bank.

“The day went well considering the weather was a little cool and wet,” said Graeme Kreiner, head professional with the club.

There were 138 golfers who participated in the event, and raised a total of $325 for the Golden Food Bank.

“This year we received a greater amount of actual food donations than in years past. And the Golden Eagle Grill was able to raise $96 with their barbecue,” said Kreiner.

The Golden Golf Club would like to thank the local businesses and volunteers who made the event possible: Bonnie Gelette, Steve and Lynda Conway, Sobey’s, Overwaitea, A&W, Columbia Wetland Adventures, Golden Optometry Clinic, Perfect Touch, and Tru Value.

“Overall the event was a great celebration of our community, and we appreciate everyone who came out and supported the event and donated to the food bank,” said Kreiner.
