Wolseley Canada recently held its 10th annual Wolseley Classic golf tournament in Winnipeg, Man., and raised $51,000 in support of Special Olympics (SO). Proceeds from the tournament, held at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club, will be donated to SO Manitoba and SO Canada.
To date, Wolseley Canada has raised $525,000 for SO. This year’s tournament, the company noted, smashed last year’s fundraising record of $40,000. Organizers achieved the significant milestone by soliciting support from numerous sponsors and also by selling raffle and 50/50 draw tickets to the 160 golfers in attendance.
