Golf tourney raises $5,000 for food bank

SIX NATIONS – Almost $5,000 was raised for the Six Nations Community Food Bank (SNCFB) at its annual fundraising golf tournament.

“The day was awesome,” said food bank co-ordinator Ellen-Rose Jamieson. “The weather was great and the entire event went incredibly smooth.”

The members of the tournaments winning team were; Shawn Hill, Jimmer Martin, Jeff Thomas and Shelby Bomberry. Bomberry also took home the prize from the 50/50 draw.

Eleven teams took part in the tournament earlier this month on June 4 for a total of 44 golfers.

“We raised nearly $5,000,” said Jamieson. “Any time the food bank receives donations or extra funding it goes straight towards keeping the community fed and taken care of and it definitely doesn’t go unnoticed.”

SNCFB wants to thank all of the volunteers and sponsors for helping its third annual golf tournament become a success; Brody Thomas, Blake McDonald, Alex Martin and Clayton McNaughton from Community Living with their worker Jade Roberts, Justine Hill and Chair of the food bank Board of Directors Mary Monture.

SNCFB also wishes to thank Monthill Golf and Country Club for hosting the tournament on their property.
