Shelter Nova Scotia Golf Classic

Shelter Nova Scotia’s golf classic on July 20th was a success! It was a beautiful day at Granite Springs Golf Course filled with great food, music, and competition.  We raised $9,253 that will be used for our food program!

$9253 = 23 days of healthy meals at Metro Turning Point

(80 ppl at MTP X $5 per meal = $400 per day)

Thank you to everyone who played, made donations and volunteered. Stay tuned for dates for the 2018 classic!  We hope you’ll join us on the course next year.
