Hamilton Chapter Charity Golf Tournament

Thank you to everyone who came out this past weekend to our 10th Hamilton Chapter Charity Golf Tournament at Brant Valley Golf Club.

Golfers enjoyed the VERY warm weather, great food and even better company.

Over $20,000 was raised and will go directly to the Hamilton Chapter.

Thank you to everyone who came out to play or supported this amazing event.

We would also like to take the time to thank Wayne and Gabe Griffiths who have tirelessly organized this golf tournament in support of our Chapter for the past ten years. The ending of this successful ten year fundraiser brought some tears ( even from Wayne) but also brought back a lot of great memories. Thank you Wayne and Gabe for all your hard work, time, and support. You have made such an impact in our community and we will forever be grateful.
