OHSWEKEN — The Six Nations Community Food Bank will be putting on its golf tournament this year on June 4 at MontHill Golf and Country Club in hopes of raising funds to continue improving its current services.
“We’ve seen an increase in the number of community members using the food bank in the past several months and we need to be able to keep helping them,” said Charley Hill, food bank co-ordinator.
This tournament will be the food bank’s third annual fundraising golf tournament and Hill is hoping to see 144 golfers out on the green.
On the big day, the food bank would like to be able to offer prizes for each golfer showing their support for the food bank so the food bank is also asking for any kind of prize donations.
Teams of four are asked to register by the early registration deadline of May 20. It costs $450 for a team to register or $125 for individuals and all the funds raised will go towards helping the food bank. The food bank is offering several different sponsorship opportunities that would give the donor certain forms or recognition and thanks at the event. The cost of the event includes 18 holes of golf, contest holes, lunch, steak dinner and a prize table.
“Aside from the regular prizes, golfers also have the chance to win a truck in our hole-in-one contest,” said Hill. “You get a hole-in-one and you get a truck.”
If you are interested in registering a team or would like more information on the tournament contact the food bank at 519-771-0025 or by email at email@example.com. Arrangements can be made for donation/prize pickup as well.
