The 25th Annual United Way Winnipeg Golf Tournament brought more than 140 golfers on 36 teams to the beautiful Bel Acres Golf & Country Club last week.
Together they raised more than $114,000 to support United Way’s work with a network of programs and agencies that help thousands of Winnipeggers each year. This wonderful generosity brought the 25-year total for the tournament to over $1.3 million!
“On behalf of the 2017 Golf Committee, thank you all for joining us today to support United Way’s essential work in our community,” said 2017 volunteer Golf Tournament Chair Serena Brennan.

After golf, Dilly Knol, Executive Director of Andrews Street Family Centre – one of 24 United Way-supported family resource centres – talked about the work her centre does to provide support to kids and families in Winnipeg’s North End. Andrews Street has been a United Way partner for as long as the golfers have been teeing off in the annual tournament – 25 years!
