$10,000 raised for Burnaby charity at annual Board of Trade golf tournament

BBOTlogo_tagline_GOn September 15th the Burnaby Board of Trade held its annual Charity Golf Tournament at Riverway Golf Course.

The crowd of 150 participants enjoyed a lunch and dinner buffet, participated in activities and contests on every hole (including the hole-in-one challenge for a chance at $10,000), and won great prizes all while helping to fundraise for our partner charity, The Burnaby Neighbourhood House.

A volunteer driven community based social service agency, The Burnaby Neighbourhood House is a place where families and individuals can come to get support and services; a place where new immigrants become connected and can find information and resources that will help them settle into their new community; where seniors and youth can gather; and where all these groups can come together in activities and events that aim to link generations and cultures and create a stronger community.

Thanks to the generosity of the players and a matching contribution of $5000 from Scotiabank, $10,000 was raised for our partner charity.

The BBOT would like to thank all of the players who participated this year and all of the sponsors whose support made the tournament possible.
