United Way’s 23rd Annual Golf Tournament crosses the $1.1 million mark!

For 23 years, golfers who love Winnipeg—and Winnipeggers who love golf—have been swinging for a stronger community. This year, they hit a collective hole-in-one, crossing the $1.1 million mark.

Braving what turned into a rather blustery day, 132 golfers played Bel Acres Golf & Country Club and raised a record-setting $130,052. Over the combined years, the tournament has raised $1.1 million for United Way’s work in the community.

Congrats tournament winners Todd Thomson, Shane Hnidy, Matt Kroeker, and Ryan Rubigny.

The real winners, of course, are the families across Winnipeg who benefit from a network of services that help us all forge a stronger community. Thank you for your con

Thank you to all the golfers and volunteers who participated. We hope you had a great day!
