Inclement weather clears in time for Manheim to get into the swing of things


MILTON, ONT. – A morning of unpromising golf weather cleared just in time for the more than 100 golfers who hit the links in Milton on Thursday for the 5th Annual Ruth Hart-Stephens Memorial Golf Tournament.

Presented by Manheim with help from platinum sponsor CarProof, the tournament was held at Milton, Ontario’s Greystone Golf Club.

Though a morning of heavy rain threatened to ruin the fun before it started, the clouds cleared shortly after competitors’ teed-off for the 18-hole scramble.

Two groups – Ian Hayes and Matt Gardy as a playing as a twosome and Marty Meadows, Steve Macaluso and Chris Afonso from CarProof – tied for the win with impressive scores of 63.

Don Wallace of Manheim Canada thanked the group following the round noting that the tournament seems to get better every year.

Staying true to its auction roots, Manheim pulled one of its lane barkers and two ringmen out of the audience to auction off additional prizes that included accommodations and rounds of golf in the Muskoka region.

All money donated at the tournament is given to the Milton Hospital Fund.

“This is so much fun for us to be able to thank all of our dealer partners with days like this,” Wallace said.
