Abbotsford Community Services hosts second annual charity golf tournament

Weather shone brightly on sold-out event

Abbotsford Community Services (ACS) hosted its second annual charity golf tournament on Tuesday, June 26 at Ledgeview Golf Club.

A total of 120 golfers at the sold-out tournament enjoyed lunch, a round of golf and a dinner with silent and live auctions.

“It was an amazing day and we want to thank the sponsors and auction participants for supporting valuable community programming,” said Serge Blanchette, the head of the golf committee and past president of the ACS board of directors.

Funds raised by this event support the ACS Area of Greatest Need (AGN) Fund, which for 2018 focuses on three groups – babies, children and seniors.

ACS provides more than 90 programs and services through a mixture of government funding, grants and donations.

The AGN Fund allows ACS to cover any funding gaps in existing programs and respond quickly to needs and issues as they arise.

The two major sponsors were CHP Architects and Teamwork Property Management as well as Bronze sponsors D.Wollf General Contracting, Tom Harris Cellular, A & W, and Valley Law Group LLP.

More than 30 other companies sponsored holes, the food and carts as well as donating items for the silent auction.

Black Press and Country 107.1 provided media coverage, while Ledgeview, Magnuson Ford and the Abbotsford Food Bank gave their time and in-kind donations.

“We are extremely pleased with the generous support of community sponsors who have guaranteed the success of our event,” said Steve Carlton, the president of the ACS board of directors. “We have seen this event start to grow and it promises to become a popular annual attraction.”

Next year’s tournament is booked for June 25.
