Throughout the 2018 golf season, golfers contributed toys, clothing and food items for the program, along with cash donations of more than $2,000.

Club executive, led by sponsorship chair Bruce MacLean, and his wife Erin, along with club president Andrew Connaris and executive members Ken Hart, Tom Bearss, Tom Carr, Vern Novack and Dave Hicks, organized the donations, including several gift certificates, into hampers for deserving families. Each hamper was loaded appropriately for each family as designated by the principals at two elementary schools in Tsawwassen, Pebble Hill and Beach Grove, and Port Guichon elementary in Ladner.

On delivery day each of the school principals expressed their appreciation for the golfers’ program and said that each family would certainly be pleased and grateful to receive their hamper for Christmas.

Connaris noted that he and all club members were proud, privileged and honoured to make a few people’s lives a little brighter during the Christmas season.
