The sixth annual Carquest Canada golf tournament on Sept. 5, drew 130 partners, vendors and supporters to the Springfield Golf and Country Club in Guelph, Ont. for a day of golf, fun and fundraising.
Those who were there say it was a fantastic day for golf, and there was a great spirit of partnership and fun, as everyone united in the name of charity.
Out on the course, golfers were given a chance to “Beat the Boss” as they teed off against Carquest Canada president and CEO Steve Gushie. Prizes were also awarded for closest to the pin, and the longest drive (though the Hole-in-One prize remained unclaimed yet again!)
When the last putt was sunk, there was first class hospitality for everyone in attendance, while the popular Silent Auction let everyone continue the friendly competition, raising even more funds for the Foundation.
In all, more than $20,000 was raised for the Charitable Foundation of Carquest and WorldPac, bringing the six year total to over $120,000 that has gone to directly support educational and non-profit projects and programs in communities across Canada.
Carquest and Worldpac extend their sincerest thanks and appreciation to everyone who attended.
