Can-Am Golf Series “Is-a-Go” for 2020
While COVID-19 has resulted in numerous event cancellations this year, one event that will go on is the 2020 Can-Am Golf Series fundraiser supporting the 2022 Police-Fire Games.
“As a community, we have always shown our support for the men and women of the emergency services,” said Windsor Councillor and Roseland Board Member Gary Kaschak, attending on behalf of Mayor Dilkens. “But, this COVID-19 pandemic has crystalized just how truly vital first responders and front line workers are, and it makes our thank-you event this year all the more poignant.”
Friday, September 25 is the date this year, and the golf will once again be played at the Roseland Golf and Curling Club.
The Canadian Mental Health Association is the games charity partner.
“The Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) is really looking forward to the 2020 golf tournament,” said Kim Willis, Director of Communications. “And, we’re excited to showcase something new this year: the artwork of children will be displayed in a tribute banner showing our appreciation for our first responders, which is especially important this year when even more has been asked of them.”
Team Goran of Re/Max Care Realty is the four-year Presenting Sponsor for the Golf Series.
“Given the nature of the COVID-19 crisis, it was immediately all hands on deck, with local first responders at the frontline protecting our families and community. As a proud partner and sponsor to the Can-Am Police-Fire Golf Series, I encourage everyone to join us and celebrate our Windsor-Essex First Responders by playing a round of golf to help fundraise and support the Can-Am Police Fire Games set for 2022.” - Goran Todorovic, of Team Goran RE/MAX Care Realty
