Community Living Brant’s 2017 Circle of Friends Golf Tournament – Celebrating 30 Years!!!
A Great Time Despite the Rain!!
On August 17, 2017 old friends and new once again gathered in anticipation of a fun day on the course. Our determined golfers set off in an attempt to prove they could have fun in spite of the storm that was brewing. The skies soon opened up and their time was limited to a few quick holes before gathering back at the club house. Most headed home to dry off before returning for the evening to enjoy a great meal, take a chance at winning some awesome raffle & auction prizes and to celebrate 30 consecutive years in support of a great organization!
The proceeds from Community Living Brant’s Annual Tournament at Northridge Golf Course support young adults with a developmental disability as they transition from secondary school to independent community life. These services support people in finding employment, continuing their education, starting a business, connecting within the community, developing relationships, exploring their future, and more!
Over $500,000.00 has been raised at this Tournament over the 30 years, and many of those present this year were again returning golfers! Your dollars truly make a difference in people’s lives – THANK YOU!!
Much success of this tournament is attributed to the effort of a dedicated Volunteer Committee. Thank you to our Committee Members – John Farley, Randy MacKenzie, John Procter and Karen Eldridge. We truly appreciate your commitment to this Tournament.
