CORNWALL, Ontario – The annual Big Brothers/ Big Sisters DQ Golf for Kids Sake golf tournament was a great success for the local chapter raising $18,640 for their mentorship programs.
“Big Brothers/ Big Sisters is extremely important to our community so it is so important that we support their programs especially their mentorship programs,” said Nolan Quinn, owner of Dairy Queen Cornwall in an earlier interview with Seaway News.
The event was sold out with 165 golfers participating. Many of the holes at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club also featured sponsors or a variety of competitive activities. One competition encouraged golfers to keep the same ball throughout the tournament for a chance to be entered into a draw.
Crystal Regnier of Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Cornwall said that participants were very generous this year which helped them to reach over $18,000 in funds raised.
“We want to thank all of our participants for being very generous in their support this year,” Regnier said.
At the tournament, Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Cornwall was accepting donations for their draw for WestJet travel vouchers. The draw for those travel vouchers is still accepting submissions. Entry to the draw is $10 a ticket with tickets available at the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Cornwall office on the corner of Third St. and Augustus St. in Cornwall.
