WaudWare Golf Tourney Makes a Difference!

The 7th Annual WaudWare Invitational Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, August 7th at Peel Village Golf Club, followed by dinner at Jake’s Boathouse.

“It started as a small intimate tournament mostly with our friends, where we could also raise some money for a good cause.  Since then we have grown because we are getting great support from across the community.  I think golfers like the fact it’s only nine holes and then we retire to Jake’s for fun and fellowship and a great meal, a meal of your choice,” says Charles Waud, President of WaudWare.

Registration is $175 for nine holes, powered golf carts, a putting challenge and a banquet dinner. Golfers will receive a $75 charitable receipt. You can register at www.waudwaregolf.ca  

“It’s a great day of golf, food and fun. We can accommodate 72 golfers in a 9-hole shotgun format so space is limited. Our golfers know to register early,” Waud says.

The tournament is built around hockey themes. The key sponsor – North American Produce Buyers Ltd. is the Stanley Cup sponsor.  Meri-Mac is the Vezina Cup sponsor. System Lifeline is the Putting shootout sponsor. Sponsor opportunities are available by contacting WaudWare – Ian Lloyd at (905) 846-9737 x556.

“Sponsorship reduces our costs, which allows us to make a bigger contribution to the Foundation.”

Net proceeds from the tournament support the Brampton and Caledon Community Foundation (BACCF). Over the past six years the tournament has contributed more than $30,000 to the Foundation.

“The BACCF holds, administers and invests these proceeds to create a permanent legacy with an annual revenue stream that is distributed to worthy charities in our community,” says BACCF Chair Bob Cranch.

“The mission of the Golf Tournament is to provide an enjoyable experience to all the participants, as well as contribute to the welfare of the Brampton area through the continued financial support of local charities. Our 2014 fund raising goal: $10,000.”

The BACCF is a public, non-profit, charitable organization created by and for the people of Brampton and its surrounding communities. It now holds over $8 million in permanent funds on behalf of individuals and groups across our community. Support for the golf tournament allows the BACCF to increase its annual grants to charities for support of much-needed projects and programs in the community.
