Generous Giving Despite Heavy Rain

On Saturday, September 17, the 11th Annual HDCH Golf Tournament was delayed due to heavy rains. Although the course was wet, it did not dampen our spirits! Die-hard golfers went out to play a couple of hours later, and rain checks were gratefully accepted. Despite the poor weather, this annual event received generous support from sponsors, golfers, donors, and raffle tickets, raising just over $36,000. The funds generated by this event will go towards our continued work at modernizing our school building.

One of the highlights was the fun, competitive spirit we had during the raffle. The room was tense as numbers were drawn. Hot items included the Traeger Wood Pellet BBQ Grill + Meat package (donated by Gourmet Meats), as well as the $1,000 getaway to Muskoka Bay Resort (donated by the HDCH Board).

I look forward to this annual event next year, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Flamborough Hills Golf Club; this time without the rain! Also, please save the date for our 60th Anniversary Celebration taking place at HDCH on Saturday, May 27, 2017. There will be events and activities appealing to all ages. Be sure to invite the family!
