Raising money for Breast Cancer at Quarry Oaks!

11 years ago I purchased a home from Michael Leclerc.  Michael has kept in touch and every year I receive emails for my birthday, christmas and his fund raiser golf tournament.  I’ve never really been interested in golf until I took up the sport this year.

This  is Michael’s 20th year raising money, and I was happy to take part for the first time.  The tournament was held at the beautiful Quarry Oaks just east of Winnipeg.  The weather and the company were excellent!  Breast Cancer sent out two volunteers to help out and I was pleased to spend the day with Mary ann and Gisele.  They brought pink ribbons and everyone was pleased to pin one on.

My contribution was to take team photos at the putting green, but I wanted to contribute a little more.  Each team had a chance to win a family portrait session and a 8×10 block mounted print.    There were 17 teams in total, and a couple players on the same team tied, so  I ended up giving out 19 portrait sessions!

The buffet dinner at Quarry Oaks was excellent and most people went home with a prize including me.  I won a Jets golfing umbrella!  I could have used this umbrella on the links a few weeks ago as I didn’t have one in my golf bag.

Michael awarded Breast Cancer with a cheque for 1700.  Way to go Michael,  keep up the great work!
