Burlington, ON – Wolseley Canada’s annual Special Olympics golf tournament, held in Winnipeg, MB, hit a hole in one earlier this summer, raising a record $40,000 for Special Olympics (SO).

On June 4 at the Bel Acres Golf and Country Club, 160 golfers and 28 sponsors participated in the 9th Annual Wolseley Classic, where all proceeds raised were donated to SO Manitoba. This year’s event topped last year’s amount raised by more than $6,000.

The first-place team of Perry Neumann, Wolseley HVAC/R Winnipeg, and Justin Habing, Rusty Radley and Chris Radley, all from R&R Mechanical, took home the grand prize.

In another fundraiser on July 12, the sun was shining as batters stepped up to the plate to play in Wolseley Canada’s 2nd Annual SO baseball tournament, held at Sherwood Forest Park in Burlington, ON, raising $750 for SO Ontario.

About 60 people attended the event, consisting of six teams made up of Wolseley Canada employees from head office and local branches.

Special Olympics is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability through sport. Wolseley Canada is a national sponsor for this cause and an active member in supporting Special Olympics chapters in local communities across the country.
