Loyalist College is hosting its twelfth annual golf tournament on Friday, September 17 at Trillium Wood Golf Club. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m., with lunch at noon and a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. Registration is $150 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, a power cart, a barbecue lunch, dinner and great prizes.
The tournament is a fundraiser in support of the College’s endowment fund to provide financial assistance for Loyalist students. To date, sponsors for the event include: Chartwells, Interprovincial Insulation, Starboard Communications Ltd., Wilkinson & Company LLP, Empire Life, Templeman Menninga LLP, Calderwood Automation, Mac & Co. Environmental Solutions, Marsh Canada Ltd., Stradwicks My Flooring Store, and Trenval Business Development Corporation. The Loyalist College Alumni Association is sponsoring a $20,000 Hole in One where the winner will receive $15,000 in cash, and a contribution of $5,000 to the Loyalist College Foundation will be made, for which a tax receipt will be issued for $5,000.
Ian Sullivan, Chair of the Tournament Committee, explains that the proceeds will benefit students at the College throughout the future. “The funds raised at this event will be matched by the provincial government through the Ontario Trust for Student Support program, and that is a tremendous opportunity for us to maximize the money raised to support our students. Since the tournament started twelve years ago, a total of $338,800 has been raised for the endowment fund. We are looking to increase that level of support with this year’s event!”
