Peggers play for change at United Way Tourney

Once again, Winnipeg business and community leaders swung into action in support of our community at the 21st annual United Way of Winnipeg Golf Tournament.

The beautiful Pine Ridge Golf Club played host to the sold-out event, with 152 golfers and 38 teams driving change in a texas-scramble style competition.

As much as it’s about the fun, friendships, partnerships and prizes, the tournament plays an important part in supporting United Way’s work in our community.  This year’s event was no exception, raising a record setting $119,342.

Ken Opaleke of West Broadway Youth Outreach, a United Way agency, played up the links between that support and the difference it makes in our community.

“It’s wonderful to be able to see how the support of volunteers, golfers, and our generous sponsors translates into a brighter future for kids and families in our community,” said Andrew Stibbard, who is concluding his term as Chair after two years with committee. “A huge thank you to everyone who has played a part in this event’s success.”
