On Wednesday September 16th the Club held its 7th annual charity golf tournament.  For the third year the charity selected was the Boys & Girls Clubs of Great Halifax.
Given the current restriction because of COVID 19 this year’s tournament was much different than previous years. The tournament was still held at the beautiful Chester Golf Club but the number of golfers was significantly less and the usual dinner and awards ceremonies following the tournament were not held.  The intent was to keep our annual tournament alive while supporting a local charity.
A total of just thirty-six (36) golfers enjoyed a lovely day on one of the most picturesque courses in Nova Scotia.  Click here to see more golfers.
This year approximately $2000 was raise in support of the B&G Clubs’ programs, to help children in need in our community.
Our club has been an active long-term supporter of the B&G Clubs and particularly the Breakfast Program.  Children, in our community, often go to school hungry and the purpose of the Breakfast Program is to ensure students receive a healthy breakfast to start off their school day.  It is fact that if a child receives a well-nourished breakfast they perform better in school. This Program is a free service which is offered at local community schools. The B&G Clubs serve over 60,000 breakfasts and snacks to children every year.
A special thanks goes out to Marg and Don Chisholm; without whose dedication and organizational skills this tournament would not have been possible.
