Calling all golfers!
Registration has opened for the 2017 Annual Canadian Black Book Charity Golf Tournament and there are two interesting story lines already emerging.
First is that the 2017 installment marks the 20th anniversary of this special event. Since starting in 1997, this industry draw has raised over $350,00 for the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation – a cause near and dear to former Canadian Black Book CEO Kathy Ward and one of only two annual, non-Horton’s family or foundation fundraising efforts.
The second major note is the host course: The Granite Golf Club in Stouffville, Ont.
This private club opens its tees only twice a year to outside tournaments meaning the CBB event, scheduled for Sept. 11, will offer a unique opportunity for participants to play an exclusive and award-winning golf course.
“For the last 20 years, this golf tournament has grown into a highly recognized industry event and one that has raised considerable funds for one of Canada’s premier charitable organizations, something that we are very proud of,” says Brad Rome, president at Canadian Black Book.
“Hosting the 2017 edition at a club as exclusive as the Granite Golf Club, will surely add demand for spots”
Rome also noted that given this is a milestone year for the event, the team will be adding some featured entertainment, though he didn’t offer any hints.
Space is limited to 144 golfers. Anyone interested in participating in a fun, annual event that can meaningfully contribute to an important cause should contact Dave Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org now.
