Abbotsford Community Foundation’s golf tournament raises $120K

Money goes toward Smart and Caring Community Fund

Abbotsford Community Foundation’s (ACF) recent seventh annual Smart and Caring Golf Classic raised $120,000 for local charities and the ACF Smart and Caring Community Fund.

The event was held Sept. 15 at Ledgeview Golf Club in Abbotsford.

ACF board chair Marcus Janzen said the golf tournament has raised more than $500,000 since its inception.

“This year we were able to bring the event back to Ledgeview Golf Club, where a sold-out group of golfers enjoyed a warm and sunny day to help raise money for the kids,” he said.

“The tremendous success of this year’s event highlights the generosity and kindness of our community.”
