MONTREAL, August 8, 2022 – Held on August 1st at the Beaconsfield Golf Club, the 19th edition of the Ken Reed Golf Tournament, sponsored by the Tenaquip Foundation, raised $270,000 to continue the fight against homelessness in Montreal.
The event was held in a friendly atmosphere, under a radiant sun allowing the 118 participants to fully enjoy their day on the greens. The money raised will be used to increase our offer of services and housing adapted to people experiencing homelessness, in a context where the affordable housing crisis tends to make the task even more difficult.
“Events like this help make a significant difference in the lives of people at risk of homelessness, or already living on the street. With the donations raised, we are able to provide appropriate housing and services to the men and women we serve and help them regain their independence,” said James Hughes, President and CEO of the Old Brewery Mission.
Tournament President Paula Shannon is pleased to support the Old Brewery Mission in this worthy cause: “Seeing an end to homelessness means giving the organizations that are committed to it the financial and material resources to better serve people in vulnerable situations. The dedication of the Old Brewery Mission team inspires us at the Tenaquip Foundation to continue to contribute to the fight against homelessness.
