The Warden’s Golf Tournament of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR), an annual charitable event, was held last Friday, June 15 at the Casselview Golf and Country Club. The 2018 edition of the tournament was a great success under clear and sunny skies, the course packed with 160 golfers.

François St-Amour, Warden of the UCPR Council, particularly wishes to thank the participants, the sponsors and the organizers for their generosity and support for this annual benefit event. “The golf tournament has allowed us to raise considerable funds, which will be distributed at the end of the year to non-profit organizations in our region, including the Prescott and Russell Community Services and the six Golden Age Clubs located in The Nation,” explained Mr. St-Amour.

“We are so pleased with this generous recognition from Warden St-Amour. Our mission is to provide community support services to adults and seniors in the region. On behalf of our clients, and myself, please accept our sincere thanks for this support,” added Sylvie Leclair, Executive Director of the Prescott and Russell Community Services.

For their generous sponsorships, the UCPR would equally like to recognize the important contributions from the following sponsors: the National Bank of Canada, Enbridge Gas Distribution, Emond Harnden SRL LLP, Vice & Hunter LLP, Deloitte Hawkesbury, McIntosh Perry, Hawkmyer Productions, SKS Law LLP and GFL Environmental. Many other generous sponsors also contributed to the financial success of the event.

As in previous years, this event provided golfers with an opportunity to support breast cancer research. Two Mustang vehicles parked on the terrain throughout the day encouraged additional funds to be donated in support of charitable causes for the Rockland Ford Classic Poker Run, which will take place on Saturday, June 30 as part of the Ottawa River Festival.

Warden St-Amour will be raising additional funds during the Warden’s Annual Banquet, which will be held on Saturday, November 17 in the Municipality of The Nation.
