CARQUEST Holds Sixth Annual Charity Golf Event

On September 5, CARQUEST Canada Ltd. held its sixth annual Golf tournament in support of the Charitable Foundation of CARQUEST and WORLDPAC.


On September 5, CARQUEST Canada Ltd. held its sixth annual Golf tournament in support of the Charitable Foundation of CARQUEST and WORLDPAC.

CARQUEST  welcomed 130 of our partners, vendors and supporters for a day of golf, fun and fundraising.  It was a fantastic day for golf, and there was a great spirit of partnership and fun as everyone came together 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, the Springfield Golf and Country Club in Guelph, Ontario provided first class hospitality to 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 our 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 our sincerest thanks and appreciation to everyone who attended.
