Creating Alternatives Special Anniversary Edition
15th Annual Charity Golf Classic & Dinner
Under beautiful sunny skies, the participants in this year’s Alternatives Annual Charity Golf Classic enjoyed a great day in the community for an even better cause. With Copper Creeks’ golf course in use, organizers were able to lure a considerable contingent of donors and guests, committed to Creating Alternatives, a local organization that provides a Day Program for adults with special needs.
The event resembled those in the past as many of the dedicated volunteers and the members of the program were on hand to ensure that the day’s proceedings went off without a hitch. Prior to the round, golfers prepared for 18 holes at the beautiful Copper Creek Golf Club course while enjoying lunch and mingling amongst friends. Once the round had ended the golfers and additional guests made their way inside Copper Creeks’ Grande Ballroom for an after-dinner affair that gave the organizers a chance to reward the day’s winners and the participants with a delicious meal. The “19th Hole” experience was MC’d by Norm Murray, Canada AM On-Air Lifestyle Presenter and over 20 years as the Television Host at The Shopping Channel. Auctions and raffles took place to make winners out of a few more participants, with The Honourable Juliann Fantino servicing up an exciting Live Auction experience. All of the proceeds helped the committee raise over $180,000 for Alternatives.
On top of the $180,000 raised was a surprise $10,000 that was presented to Phyllis Santone by Mayor Bevilcqua towards further programming at Alternatives.
