Golf tournament returns; raises more than $9k for the LLSC
The skies were blue and the sun was out for the return of the UFCW Locals 175 & 633 Golf Tournament on Saturday, May 28, 2022.
One hundred forty-four golfers took to the tee blocks for the long-awaited return of the annual golf tournament at Lionhead Golf Club & Conference Centre in Brampton. After a two-year hiatus, golfers were excited to return to the links for 18 holes on the Masters course. The fairways were dry and the greens were fast, but golfers scrambled their way to the finish to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).
“The golfers were enthusiastic and ready to play a great game. We had a beautiful day for some golf and it’s always a good day to raise money for blood cancer research at the LLSC,” said President Haggerty.
This year’s tournament fundraising total, raised through donations and sponsorship from businesses and workplaces, was $9,133!
All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada in hopes of ending childhood blood cancers. Visit bloodcancers.ca for more information on the LLSC’s important work and how your support helps improve the lives of blood cancer patients and their families.
“On behalf of Locals 175 & 633 and the LLSC, thank you to all the golfers and tournament sponsors who came out to support this worthy cause,” said President Haggerty.
Our Local Union is proud to organize fundraising events for the LLSC, which has been the charity of choice for UFCW since the mid-1980s. As of July 2021, UFCW members across the country have donated their time and money to help raise more than $47.2 million nation-wide. We hope to get back to holding more of our regular fundraising events in person this year and moving forward.
