It’s our 10th Mayors’ Golf Tournament!
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the North Shore Mayors’ Golf Tournament, as well as Canada’s 150th birthday, the committee has increased beneficiary funding of $50,000 and this year two beneficiaries will each receive $35,000. Quest Food Exchange and Turning Point Recovery Society have both been selected as designated charities for 2017.
Quest Food Exchange’s program focuses on the redistribution of quality surplus food, primarily through their not for profit grocery market model. The program has been created to ensure that people living on low income have access to affordable, healthy food. Currently Quest has four locations in the Lower Mainland and their fifth location will be opening on the North Shore in the fall of 2016. For more information on Quest, please visit their website at www.questoutreach.org
Turning Point Recovery Society is one of British Columbia’s leading residential addiction treatment facilities. In 2014, Turning Point opened its first North Shore location for women only. More than 30 women are assisted annually in seeking treatment and recovery. In the spring of 2017, Turning Point will open the North Shore doors of its licensed addictions support recovery house for men. Visit www.turningpointrecovery.com for more information.
“These two organizations are much needed assets to residents of the North Shore and we, as a community, are able to help and support these essential facilities.” says Michael Boehm President of the North Shore Community Foundation. “They also complement each other in their efforts to assist their clients and are a natural fit to work together moving forward in our community. We are really excited to bring these two great organizations together and welcome them to the North Shore.”
Quest Food Exchange Executive Director, Elizabeth Lewis-Crudgington stated, “Our surplus food recovery and redistribution model offers a viable, dignified solution to food insecurity and we are extremely excited to open our Lower Lonsdale location and serve the needs of individuals facing food security challenges on the North Shore.”
Brenda Plant of Turning Point Recovery Society commented, “We are extremely honoured to have been selected as co-recipients of the North Shore Mayors’ Golf Tournament and to share this honour in partnership with Quest Food Exchange with whom we share a commitment to help those members of our community that are vulnerable and in need of our services.
Please mark your calendars for next year’s tournament scheduled for June 23rd, 2017 and consider joining us for our very special 10th annual golf tournament!
The support we get from over sixty corporate sponsors is amazing and we can’t thank them enough. These sponsors provide cash and donated goods and services. While there are different levels of support all sponsors contribute to putting on a successful event. Our three mayors have also been very supportive in lending the name of their respective offices to the event. We really appreciate their encouragement and enthusiasm for the event. Friendly team and individual competition is provided to all our golfers as well as on-course samplings of great food and drink. There will also be interesting on-course challenges; longest drive, closest to the hole, hole-in-one and the putting contest.
