On Friday, June 25, 38 golfers participated in 1st Annual Father’s Day Golf tournament at Monthill Golf & Country Club. They Are Coming Home, Carmen Thomas and Ganohkwasra Family Assault Support Services Men’s Program managed to put this event together in 4 weeks raising a total of $3,600 to go towards Men’s Program activities. Ganohkwasra staff stated funds will be used to further support men on their healing journey (special guest/speaker, training, workshops etc).
Organizers of the event wanted to see fathers come out with their children to play and enjoy a round of golf while supporting men’s wellness program. Based on player’s feedback we may look at coordinating a Family Golf Scramble event sometime during Community Awareness Week, says Thomas.
