Beach Grove Golf & Country Club hosts 100 Holes of Golf Charity Event raising $70,000 for Tecumseh and Windsor-Essex County Charities
Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, one of Ontario’s only waterfront Country Clubs and Southwestern Ontario’s premier private Golf and Country Club turned 100 years old in 2021! The Club has embarked on a community initiative to commemorate its 100th anniversary by aiming to raise $100,000 to give back to the community. Beach Grove biggest fundraising initiative of the year took place on Monday, July 5th as they held the 100 Holes of Golf charity event.
The 100 Holes of Golf hosted 18 participants who generated pledges of support to play 100 holes in one day. Participants have been gathering pledges from friends, family, and local businesses to generate a minimum entry fee of $5,000. The final amount of $68,700, which was later increased to $70,000 following two additional pledges, was shared during the reception following golf on Monday evening. A formal cheque presentation from Mike Burnett, event Chairperson, was made to Club’s President, Frank Dayus Jr., and Club Vice President and Centennial Committee Chair, Karl Straky.
“The 100 Holes of Golf fundraising event was a terrific success! Thanks to the generosity of our community and Beach Grove membership who were immensely supportive of this event, we are much closer to reaching our fundraising goal of $100,000 in our 100th Anniversary Year!” said Beach Grove’s President, Frank Dayus Jr.
The funds raised will be put towards the on-going campaign in hopes of reaching the goal of $100,000 in Beach Grove’s Centennial Year. Funds will be distributed to support the four pillars of the Beach Grove Centennial Charitable Initiative “Creating a Legacy Campaign”. Pillars include the areas of Children, Mental Health, Hospitals and Community. The selected charities include the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation, WE Care for Kids, UHC – Hub of Opportunity (formally known as the Unemployed Help Centre) and Canadian Mental Health Association!
Mike Burnett, 100 Holes of Golf Chair, shared his appreciation of the support he and his Committee received, “We are delighted and overwhelmed by the response we have had from the participants and the community to ensure the 100 Holes of Golf was a success! Beach Grove has been in this community for 100 years, what better way to show our support then giving back to those in need.”
The Club has a deep-rooted history within the community, since the day of its inception in 1921, dating back to the days of prohibition. Beach Grove has positioned itself for a vibrant future and continues to increase its service levels. Keeping with tradition, Beach Grove historically is known for offering a superb family experience as one of the finest private clubs in Southwestern Ontario. Moving into the next century the same values and traditions will be in the forefront of the service delivery model.
