Thanks to another successful charity golf tournament, a realty company with branches across Surrey and the Fraser Valley, has been able to donate $42,000 to Canuck Place.
The 11th Annual HomeLife Charity Golf Classic, held at Northview Golf Course May 25, drew a sold-out field of golfers, resulting in a win for the families served by Canuck Place, said Rick Dubord, president of HomeLife Realty Services B.C.
The event was a team effort involving volunteers, sponsors, Canuck alumni and golfers.
“It’s not just the money that’s important,” he added, “it’s the awareness of the need for the services provided by Canuck Place.”
To meet growing needs, Canuck Place is building a hospice in Abbotsford. The 30,000 square-foot facility will have 10 beds, and five family suites, essentially doubling the capacity of Canuck Place, and extending services to families in the Fraser Valley and B.C. Interior.
Canuck alumni attending the golf tournament included Dennis Ververgaert, Garry Monahan, and Dean Malkoc.
The July 11 Ride 4 Hope from South Surrey to Hope also supports Canuck Place.
HomeLife Realty has raised more than $340,000 for the charity through the its golf tournaments.
HomeLife Realty has three offices in Surrey, including Cloverdale, as well as White Rock, Langley and Abbotsford.
