An online auction and 50/50 raffle are part of the annual Archway Community Services Charity Golf Tournament, which takes place June 25.

The Archway Community Services Charity Golf Tournament returns for its seventh year on Tuesday, June 25.

Although the tournament at the Ledgeview Golf Club is sold out with 144 golfers, the accompanying 50/50 online raffle and online auction are open to the public. 

“Last year we had a fundraising record of $101,500 but we’d love to beat that record again,” said Steve Carlton, Archway’s past board president and chair of the tournament organizing committee.

“The need in our community is increasing every year, which highlights the importance of fundraisers like these to help keep critical programs operating.” 

One of the many programs being featured on the course this year is Meals on Wheels, which offers nutritious fresh and frozen meal options for those unable to cook or shop for themselves.  

“Every meal delivered represents a commitment to enhancing our clients’ quality of life, fostering independence and providing a lifeline to those who need it most,” said Alida Swanson, supervisor for senior services at Archway. 

The tournament also supports Archway programs such as Best for Babies, Community Van, Immigrant Youth Services and more.  

Mike Gibson of Sutton Group West Coast Realty shared why they are returning as the title sponsor for the fourth year.

“Archway is a tremendous organization that strengthens the neighbourhoods we serve. These programs improve the quality of life for everyone, and Archway gives us the opportunity to help those that need it most," he said.
