AIA Chairman of the Board, John MacDonald regretted not being able to present the medal in person but, added that, “Brent has been a leader in the Manitoba Division for many years and has volunteered countless hours in support of raising dollars for the Sun Fund for Kids charity. His dedication is truly worthy of this great honour. and I congratulate him on behalf of the industry. I look forward to congratulating Brent in person in the near future”.
Nearly 60 golfers hit the course making the day another great success. The event provided members of the Manitoba Division the opportunity to network with peers while having some fun and managed to raise $5,200 for the AIA/Manitoba Scholarship Program. “I have a superb organizing team that handles the golf tournament and ensures everyone has a great time each year. We’re extremely grateful to all our sponsors and are proud that we were able to raise so much money for our scholarship fund” said Doug Muir, Chair, Manitoba Division.
Thanks to everyone who attended the tournament and helped to raise money for the scholarship fund!
