2017 Fred Bragnalo Memorial Golf Tournament a Hit

Our 30th Annual Golf Tournament took place on July 24th with 145 golfers gathered at the Fort William Country Club for a great afternoon of golf and an evening of fun, fundraising, a successful silent auction. A big vote of thanks to our presenting sponsor RBC and to the numerous volunteers who made the event a success. Thanks to event Chair Dave Siciliano and his hard working committee members and to our participants, generous sponsors and prize donors, who all helped to raise close to $26,000 for sports heritage.
