Jim Kelly of the Sydenham and District Lions club was thrilled to report that their recent golf tourney fundraiser, which took place at the Rivendell Golf Club in Verona on June 15, was by far their most successful to date.
The tournament raised over $5,000 for the No Child Without program, which provides MedicAlert bracelets to students in need. This year’s proceeds will assist students at Harrowsmith Public School.
Kelly said the tournament’s overwhelming success this year was largely due to the generosity of the many sponsors and prize donors, as well as the many neighboring Lions Clubs members who made the trip from Tamworth, Verona and Amherstview to participate in the tournament. The Sydenham and District Lions have supported the No Child Without Program in many of our local area schools over the years.
