The annual Cogeco Golf Tournament for Girls Inc. occurred on Friday, July 7, at the beautiful Prescott Golf Club for the 10th year in row! Sixty-eight golfers enjoyed a breezy day on the fairways, with the excitement of a potentially-winning poker hand, prizes, and loaded Silent Auction tables back at the clubhouse. The rain held off until almost everyone was off the course, and a delicious steak dinner was prepared by Ricco’s Restaurant & Catering. With the help from golfers and sponsors such as Cogeco, Strader-Ferris International, Glenview Iron & Metal Ltd., CANARM, and many others, over $10,000 was raised for Girls Inc. programming for girls aged 6-18 across Leeds-Grenville!
Girls Inc. is a registered charitable non-profit that does not receive government funding. We depend on event fundraising, grants, corporate sponsorships, and donations from the generous people of Leeds-Grenville to provide our programs and workshops at little or no cost. We sincerely thank all organizations and individuals that contribute to our three signature events: the TD Canada Trust Women’s Hockey Tournament, our Strong, Smart & Bold Women of the Year Celebration, and our Cogeco Golf Tournament for Girls Inc.
We attempt to remove all barriers to our life-changing programming for girls. We have full and partial subsidies, we have light registration requirements, and we host our programs in-school and out in the various communities, so that the girls that need it most can access programming, workshops, March Break and Summer Camps in their respective schools and home towns, or in the cities where their caregivers work. We are looking for companies that would like to sponsor our upcoming Summer Camps in Prescott, Gananoque, Brockville, and Kemptville.
