May 29, 2013 at 7:00pm

On May 25, 2013, more than 200 golfers took to the links at the Lionhead Golf & may29:13-2Country Club in Brampton to play in the Local Union’s annual tournament to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Canada. [photos]
The sky was bright and sunny, and despite a chilly wind that made club choice a bit difficult throughout the day, everyone had a great time. Golfers registered, had hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch, and set out for the links to tee off in their four-person scrambles.
After 18 holes, teams returned to the clubhouse for a great buffet dinner. Retired Local 175 Secretary-Treasurer Jerry Clifford emceed the evening and presented the day’s tournament champions – Barry Sawyer, Todd Janes, Jim McLean and Mary McLean (absent from photo) – with their green jackets. Male and female winners for the longest drive and closest to the pin each picked up their prize of $200 too! There was also a number of raffle prizes to be one including TVs, golf clubs and more.
The Local Union would like to thank all of our participants for their generosity throughout the day and to so many of you who return year after year. Raising $37,000 wouldn’t be possible without your support.
