On Friday May 24, the clouds parted and the sun shone on 140 golfers and special guests at the sixth annual North Shore Mayors' Golf Tournament held at Seymour Golf and Country Club.
A dedicated team of 20 volunteers worked behind the scenes to ensure the event was a resounding success. Total funds raised on the day were just under $100,000 with $13,000 being raised at the post-dinner live auction. Former West Vancouver mayor Mark Sager again served as auctioneer and helped cajole attendees into supporting the fundraising efforts.
This year, $50,000 of the funds generated are going to Hollyburn Family Services' Supporting Seniors to Remain Housed project. The project is designed to help vulnerable North Shore seniors maintain stable housing and participate actively in the community.
The team from Anthem Properties took first place overall at the tournament followed by the team from BA Blacktop in second and Sager Law in third. Jordan Weaver won Men's Long Drive, Mike Peebles took Men's Closest to the Pin and Leslie Carter took the honours for both Women's Long Drive and Women's Closest to the Pin.
