On June 16th, the AIA Manitoba Division along with Child & Family Services Western Manitoba (CFSWM) hosted their 16th Annual Golf tournament.
The Sun Fund for Kids Westman is administered by CFSWM with 100% of the monies raised used to send children to various area camps. The Sun Fund for Kids Westman was spearheaded by Brian Marshall with the Brandon Sun and CFS Western Manitoba in 1988.
The event was held at Shilo Golf Course in Shilo, Manitoba and attended by 44 golfers and 45 Sun Fund Hole Sponsors, many of them have been supporters since the inaugural tournament in 2005. A great day of golf was had by all who once again enjoyed a challenging course under sunny skies. At the post-tournament dinner, AIA Manitoba presented a cheque for $5,900.00 to CFS Western Manitoba CEO Arlene Stewart and, in addition, presented Arlene with a cheque for $1,500.00 on behalf of AIA High Five for Kids Foundation bringing the 2022 tournament donation to $7,400.00 and the 16-year total over $115,000.00.
Thanks go out to tournament organizers Pete Lepage, Auto Parts Central Brandon, Art Asham, (CFSWM retired), Mark Gillis, CFSWM and Brent Karr, Bestbuy Distributors Ltd.
The 17th Sun Fund for Kids Golf Tournament will be held on June 8, 2023.
