With Centra’s match we raised over $72,000, beating last year’s total by over $20,000 and making this the best year yet! The day was an exemplary event, showing how Centra likes to work hard…but play hard too!
It all kicked off with a tailgate party complete with pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, and a few cold ones. The staff at Redwoods were unbeatable in their enthusiasm and attention to detail. We were so grateful to have them working with us!
Properly hydrated and full of delicious food, it was time for the tee-off…but first we held our annual mega-putt (and let us say, there are some skilled golfers amongst us!) Following this annual tradition the golfers grabbed their bags and it was off to the course!
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to hold the tournament, with the sun-shinning and nothing but blue skies. It was the ideal day to sit back and enjoy a leisurely game out on the course.
The whole day was a resounding success, and we owe each of our sponsors and participants a huge thank you for all support and donations! We could not have raised $72,000 had it not been for you!
All the funds raised will be going to La Semilla Ministries in Nicaragua, to build a medical clinic. We will be returning to Nicaragua this coming November, to help develop, build, and establish the medical facility. In addition, funds will be going to The Mustard Seed located in Victoria, to continue helping their efforts towards alleviating hunger and strengthen the spirits of those who truly need it.
Words cannot express our gratitude and pride in what was accomplished in our 20th annual golf classic! We at Centra thank you all again, and hope to see you at our future Centra Cares Charity events!
Speaking of events…This year we are starting our First Annual Golf Classic in Victoria at Bear Mountain Resort. We would love to have you out there on the course with us! For tournament information please visit http://www.centracares.ca/tournament-details/golf-tournament-sponsorship
