Titans basketball team gets $3000 from Hawkesbury Council

The Titans minor basketball association received a $3,000 donation from the Town of Hawkesbury on June 25, 2018.

Titans team president Marcel Arseneau accepted the big cheque at the council meeting, the result of a fundraising golf tournament hosted by the Town of Hawkesbury on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

“The golf tournament was held to raise money for Hawkesbury’s youth,” said Hawkesbury council member Johanne Portelance.

“This money will help ‘spoil’ the team a little bit and help those who may need help to pay the membership fees.”

Portelance also stated that a celebration day would be organized for Hawkesbury’s youth with the money left over from the tournament. This day of festivities will take place on August 24, 2018, and will feature many activities including inflatable games for kids and snacks.
