AIA Ontario golfers raise $10K for kids

Automotive aftermarket golfers raised $10,000 for the High Fives For Kids Foundation at the 2017 AIA Ontario Division Golf Tournament at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Georgetown, Ont.

Despite some weather that had participants drying off at the end of the day, members of the automotive aftermarket turned out to raise $10,000 at the AIA Ontario Division Golf Tournament.

Money raised will go to the High Five for Kids Foundation, which provides grants to charities that benefit children and youth, such as the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation in Edmonton and Sun Fund for Kids in Manitoba.

Golfers were treated to a barbeque lunch before hitting the course at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Georgetown, Ont., about an hour northwest of Toronto. During the dinner portion, prizes were awarded through a raffle and 50/50 draw, which was donated back to the foundation by the winner, Khal Abu Dagga of Hamilton Discount Parts.
