Posted: June 13th, 2017

There was much to celebrate at this year’s Roger Anderson Charity Classic, as the golf tournament marked its 20th anniversary and the fact it has now raised more than $6 million to support local youth since its inception.

One of Durham Region’s most popular and well-established fundraising events, 220 golfers took to the Deer Creek golf course on June 8, raising $403,000 to support students in financial need at Durham College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, as well as child and youth programs at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.

“This golf tournament was started to raise valuable funds for local youth, and we’ve had two decades of fun doing that,” said Roger Anderson, Durham Regional chair and chief executive officer. “I am so grateful for the support of the community – from the golfers, many of whom represent local organizations and businesses, to the volunteers who tirelessly dedicate their time – for helping make this tournament a success every year.” 

Karim Mamdani, president and CEO, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences; Tim McTiernan, president, UOIT; and Don Lovisa, president, Durham College, attended the evening’s cheque presentation, offering their own thanks for the hard work and dedication of the tournament organizers and the generosity of its sponsors.

Tournament organizers also give recognition and gratitude to all sponsors and volunteers for their generous and continued support.
