SNC Golf Tournament Raises $4,000 for Maple Syrup Education Program
Nearly 100 golfers and local sponsors helped South Nation Conservation (SNC) raised $4,000 for youth environmental education at its annual Friends of SNC Golf Tournament on August 8 at the Upper Canada Golf Course in Morrisburg.
“A big thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored or made a donation to the tournament, making it one of our most successful tournaments yet,” says John Mesman, SNC Team Lead, Communications.
Players were treated to a variety of on-hole games, and many walked away with door prizes courtesy of local businesses including St-Albert Cheese Factory, Upper Canada Playhouse, Beau’s Brewery, and Crysler Home Hardware.
“It’s inspiring to see people having a great time in support of a worthy cause,” adds Mesman. “This is one of our favourite corporate fundraising activities and it brings people together, outside, where they can enjoy their local environment.”
SNC re-launched its flagship Maple Syrup Education Program this year for its 18th season, following a year of transition. Over 500 students from 9 local schools were welcomed at the program’s new home at Oschmann Forest in Ormond. Funds raised at the golf tournament will fund permanent washroom facilities and an interpretive education centre on-site.
“We are thrilled to offer educational opportunities in our community forests,” explains Mesman. “The funds raised from this year’s tournament will allow us to continue delivering our Maple Syrup Education Program at the Oschmann Forest this spring.”
