Eighteen teams teed off at the Pontefract Golf Club on Saturday morning, competing in the seventh iteration of an annual tournament.
Raising over $8,500 for the Mansfield and Pontefract Fire Department, the event organizer was proud to have had another successful year, with a better turnout and lots of support from sponsors.
“Just in donations, we’ve received up $5,800,” said Claudette Pleau, the event organizer. “That’s not counting the day’s participation, like player fees.”
Beyond these donations, Pleau said they received great support from the community in sponsoring extra prizes, the hole-in-one bonus. Mansfield’s Petro T had donated $9,000 in free gas to anyone capable of sinking that shot on hole two.
