Golf tournament fundraising goes virtual

For the past 31 years, the Semiahmoo Rotary Charity Golf Tournament has raised more than $1.4 million to fund many community projects. Normally held in June, this year’s golf tournament has been postponed until Tuesday, September 08 and modified for Covid-19 safety.

“Although this event was at risk of being cancelled earlier this year, the incredible news is that it’s now sold out with 144 golfers attending and, for the first time ever, there are two ways in which members of the public can participate and support their community at the same time,” explains David Young, CEO of SOURCES.

“Team Semitrail” raises awareness and funds for Coldest Night of the Year

Rocco Forte can tell you all about the Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY).

A student at Semiahmoo Trail Elementary, Rocco is the Captain of “Team Semitrail.” On February 22, 2020, he will be leading his team to walk in his fourth CNOY (White Rock) in support of SOURCES’ Homelessness Prevention Services and Rent Bank.

CNOY is a family-friendly walkathon that happens in 145 communities across Canada on the same day. Participants raise awareness and money to help local charities that support people who are homeless, hungry and hurting.

To raise awareness, Rocco spent time in January interviewing Jay Blaschuk, Manager of Housing Support Services at SOURCES. He asked Jay serious questions like who uses the Rent Bank, what SOURCES can do with the fundraised money, and if even a small donation can make a difference.

To raise money, Rocco organized a hot chocolate sale at his school on February 10. “We poured out 200 cups of hot chocolate – Tim Hortons donated 100 cups,” said Rocco’s mom, Sara. “We only used 50 disposable cups as most kids brought their own. We raised $374.15 towards our team’s CNOY fundraising.” Bravo!

As of 4:30 p.m. on February 11, Team Semitrail has raised over $1,100!

However, they still have a ways to go to reach their ambitious fundraising goal of $3,000. To support Team Semitrail, please click the button below:
