A local golf tournament raised an imprssive amount of money for two local organizations.
152 golfers descended on Sturgeon Valley Golf and Country Club last Friday for the Mayor's Annual Golf Tournament.
"We had a great turnout, we had great support from the community and business through sponsorship so it was definitely something to be proud of," said Sturgeon County senior communications officer, Sheila Moore.
This year, golfers managed to raise $20,994.45 for the West Sturgeon Aging in Place Foundation as well as Homeland Housing.
"Mayor [Tom] Flynn had a great day," Moore said of the mayor's golf game. "He had his own hole with his activity, Closest to the pin with Flynn, so he was able to interact with all the guests."
West Sturgeon Aging in Place Foundation operates the West Country Hearth senior's home in Villeneuve, while Homeland Housing provides subsidized housing for seniors, managing facilities in the county and surrounding areas.
