Financial note on golf tournaments

Ann Kelly Golf tournaments

The latest LPGA Major tournament was held in London, Ontario, Canada.  At the conclusion of the tournament, the major sponsor, Canadian Pacific presented a cheque to the community hospital for $1,100.045.  It is reported that golfers, via tournaments, contribute more than the “big boys” (NHL, NFL, NBA) combined.

Another interesting note was that the players were also challenged.  For each birdie during the 4 day tournament, CP donated $5,000…and there were 68 birdies! Nice work!
