It was announced on Friday that one charitable event that will not suffer cancellation this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be the Can-Am Golf Series fundraiser.
The event is designed to raise funds to support the upcoming 2022 Police-Fire Games in Windsor.
“As a community, we have always shown our support for the men and women of the emergency services,” said Coun. Gary Kaschak, a board member at Roseland Golf and Curling Club which will host the event. “But this COVID-19 pandemic has crystallized just how truly vital first responders and front-line workers are, and it makes our thank-you event this year all the more poignant.”
This year’s event takes place on Friday, Sept. 25, with the local Canadian Mental Health Association playing a role as the games’ charity partner.
“The Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) is really looking forward to the 2020 golf tournament,” Kim Willis, communications director for the agency, said in a statement.
