1,000+ GOLFERS PLAY IN LARGEST EVER GOLF TOURNAMENT IN CANADA 
LiUNA Local 183 hosts tournament at 7 courses across the GTA in the 17th annual event

June 21, 2016, Toronto ON – Today, construction union LiUNA Local 183 hosted its 17th Annual Charity Golf Classic. This year’s event hosted more than 1,000 golfers and took place simultaneously at seven golf courses across Ontario making it the largest one-day golf tournament in Canadian history. It is expected to raise an unpreceded $500,000 in proceeds for local charities.

“It’s exciting to see how much this event continues to grow year after year,” said Jack Oliveira, Business Manager of LiUNA Local 183 and LiUNA Ontario Provincial District Council. “We are immensely proud that today’s Charity Golf Classic will be the largest one-day golf tournament ever played in Canada, and thrilled to know we are projected to bring in over half a million dollars in charitable donations – our largest total ever.”

This year, two additional golf courses were included in the event, bringing the total courses to seven including: Copper Creek, Eagles Nest, Glen Abbey, Greystone, King Valley, Rattlesnake Point and Wooden Sticks. Following the day’s scheduled golfing activities, participants were treated to an evening dinner reception and took home an array of prizes including a 2016 Mini Cooper.

Proceeds will be donated to various charities throughout the province. Funds from this event have previously benefited organizations such as the United Nations World Food Programme, SickKids and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
