Grant Recipients

2020 was an unprecedented year and as a result of the pandemic, our signature fundraising event, a first class golf tournament held in September of each year, was cancelled. Thankfully, due to the amazing generosity of our supporters, we were in the position to provide grants to 13 organizations totalling $300,000.
