MINTO – The 10th annual Town of Minto Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament raised about $5,000 for a planned youth centre in the municipality.
Mayor George Bridge reported at the Sept. 1 council meeting that 35 teams participated in the event, which was held at Pike Lake Golf Centre on Aug. 6.
Bridge said the participants enjoyed the event, “even though we couldn’t get together for a big meal at the end of the day,” due to pandemic restrictions.
Funds from this year’s tournament will be used to assist an Integrated Youth Services Network Hub to be located in Palmerston.
The hubs are part of a grassroots community initiative, led by the Rotary Club of Guelph, to bring an integrated youth services model to the city and Wellington County.
Seven such hubs are planned in the region, with four to be located in Guelph while others will be in East Wellington and Centre Wellington.
Established 10 years ago to raise funds for organizations within the Town of Minto, the tournament has raised over $100,000 for 35 local organizations since its inception.
