Golf for Literacy
Date: postponed to 2022
Location: Breezy Bend Golf & Country Club
Format: 18-Hole Texas Scramble
Join business leaders as they gather for golf and comradery to celebrate and support literacy in West Winnipeg. All money raised stays in West Winnipeg and supports children and adults who struggle with reading, writing and math. There are many groups that provide a very special service to the people in our community and we are pleased to raise funds for these designated charities. 2019 recipients were the following:
- Stevenson Britannia Adult Learning Centre
- St. James-Assiniboia Parent Child Coalition & New Immigrant Program
- Westgrove School (Pembina Trails School Division)
- Urban Stable
The Golf for Literacy 2022 event is in its 2nd year and together with our community partners we want to raise awareness of child and adult literacy in Manitoba. Funds raised from this golf event will support organizations that currently encourage, train and develop the skills through managed literacy programs. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please contact Kristi Meek.
Thank you to our 2022 Title Sponsor:
