Annual Golf Classic

On July 11, 2019 80 golfers participated in our 3rd Annual Golf Classic. Congratulations to the winning team Gratitude@work and to the most honest team Scotia Square. Together we raised $15,281. Save the date for next year – July 9, 2020.

So what does that means for guests of Metro Turning Point? The funds you raised will ensure that 26 people will be able to stay at the emergency shelter.
(A night’s rest is $35.50, the average length of stay for men at Metro Turning Point is 16 nights. Knowing this we can calculate that the funds raised will aid 26 people)
