Golf tourney raises more than $30K
Jocelyn Druer volunteered at the putting contest during the Simcoe Community Services Foundation’s 19th annual golf tournament. Although she can use only one arm to golf, she shot a birdie in 2013 at Hawk Ridge Golf and Country Club, which was captured on a Simcoe Community Services documentary, available for viewing at rogerstv.com/infocusihaveavoice. Druer, a.k.a. “birdie girl,” readily shared her golfing tips. (SUBMITTED PHOTO)
The Simcoe Community Services Foundation held its 19th annual golf tournament recently at Hawk Ridge Golf and Country Club.
More than $30,000 in net proceeds will benefit youth with intellectual disabilities in the Barrie and Orillia areas though the Youth in Action program.
The funds raised will assist local youth to build life and social skills. It was an excellent day on the golf course with a silent and live auction, plus plenty of games. Jamie Hall, of CHAY Today 93.1, presided over the banquet and the awards ceremony as MC.
RBC Dominion Securities was again the presenting sponsor.
The Simcoe Community Services Foundation acknowledges the community support of the many sponsors, donors and golfers. The golf tournament was made possible due to the support of major sponsors RBC Dominion Securities, Desjardins Insurance, Equitable Life of Canada, Martino Contractors, Comvida Corporation, Roderick H. Young Architect and many other businesses, individuals and in-kind supporters.
The Simcoe Community Services Foundation depends on community partners to improve the quality of life for youth with intellectual disabilities. For information about how to support the golf tournament next year — it will take place June 19, 2015 — email Lisa Spinks-Smith, fund developer for the Simcoe Community Services Foundation, at email@example.com.
