More than 600 Home Hardware Dealer-Owners, Staff, suppliers and friends teed up for charity yesterday for the Home Hardware Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of Ray of Hope, a community organization that provides support services for troubled youth.
Each year, Home Hardware makes a two-year commitment to a local charity and partners to plan and execute the annual golf tournament. Over the last 17 years, the Home Hardware Annual Charity Golf Tournament has raised nearly $390,000 for various local charities.
Golfers hit the links at four courses across Waterloo Region, including Elmira Golf Club, Grey Silo Golf Club, Rebel Creek Golf Club, and Whistle Bear Golf Club. Following the tournament golfers attended a dinner at St. George Banquet Hall with a silent auction of over 100 items donated by Home Hardware and its suppliers and partners.
“Home Hardware has always made giving back to our communities a significant part of our culture. This annual event is a great opportunity to bring together our people and partners for a day of fun while raising money for a great cause. I’m especially grateful to our volunteers and sponsors for helping to make this tournament a success,” says Terry Davis, CEO, Home Hardware Stores Limited.
The proceeds from the upcoming 2015 golf tournament will again be put towards Ray of Hope.
