On Sunday, December 3, the Executive Committee members of the Cunninghams Pub & Whitlock Community Golf Tournament were proud to be able to donate $4000 to the Hudson Firefighters Food Drive fund. These incredible and brave volunteer firefighters who protect our community and keep us safe, also do year-long fundraising to raise monies for the Christmas Food Basket Drive which helps approximately 50 families in the Hudson area with everything from Christmas meals to filling up a tank of home heating oil.
The Cunninghams Pub & Whitlock Community Golf Classic was held at Whitlock on June 19, 2017. The proud community support of 186 golfers, 240 dinner guests, 30 volunteers along with several corporate and community sponsors raised just over $30,000.
This extraordinary result couldn’t have been possible without our two major corporate sponsors Eyton Jones Insurance & Financial Group and Hawkesbury Ford.
The following community charities, local association and foundation were the benefactors:
The Canadian Kidney Foundation who received a donation of $17,700. This foundation holds a place in our hearts as many people close to the organizing committee have been donors or kidney transplant recipients.
Western Patriotes Football, a local community sports association, was presented with a cheque for $3000 to allow young men and women the chance to play football even if they cannot afford the registration fee or equipment.
Le Pont/Bridging, the Hudson food bank, was also given a cheque for $5000 to continue their incredible work to keep families in our community comfortable and fed.
This significant donation to help those in need during the holiday season allows all of us to celebrate together our pride of community.
