Canada Goat Golf Open celebrates 25 years

The Niagara Community Foundation and the Goats are heading back once again to the Cherry Hill Club.

The Foundation will host the 25th Anniversary Canada Goat Open Golf Tournament June 6, 2017 at the Cherry Hill Club in Ridgeway. To date, the tournament has raised more than $1 million for charities across Niagara and for the Goat endowment fund at NCF.

“Since partnering with the Goats, the impact has been tremendous,” said Bryan Rose, executive director. “The funds we have raised will support charities now and forever. The Goats are an amazing group of generous and hard working volunteers who are committed to helping their community.

“Our golfers and sponsors have also made incredible contributions. Some have been with the tournament since the first year. This tournament is just a tremendous example of a community coming together to give back.”

The tournament is nearly sold out. Golfers will play at the exclusive Cherry Hill Club and be treated to amazing prizes. The tournament is also celebrating its long partnership with BMO Bank of Montreal, a major sponsor for 20 years. Countless donors support the live auction, with auction items including an all-inclusive package at Island 10 Fishing Retreat on Lady Evelyn Lake, donated by Ken and Bev Byberg.

In 2011, the Foundation was approached by the Goats to partner on the well established tournament. Now the tournament proceeds flow directly through the Foundation’s discretionary grants program and a portion allocated to the Goat endowment fund, a legacy for the Goat volunteers.

For more information about the tournament, including registering to golf, sponsor or donate, please contact the Niagara Community Foundation.
