3M Golf for Kids Sake

3M GFK 2014 logo


Supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County were on hand to enjoy a fun day of golf at Mapleview in Perth on Saturday. It was another sold out event, with 144 golfers taking part, and enjoying the beautiful course while supporting a great local children’s charity.


3M Canada in Perth was this year’s title sponsor, and sent two teams to participate, as well as donated items for the very popular take home bags that each golfer gets.


The participants were well fed during the day. Tim Hortons donated the coffee and muffins, Garden Market Smiths Falls provided fresh fruit for a mid morning snack and dessert to accompany the homemade cookies provided by Wendy Andison. Shoppers Drug Mart in Smiths Falls provided pop, Frito Lay donated chips. Blair & Sons donated water and ice.


There were many games that added to the day’s fun, including a putting contest that provided many golfers with Tim Hortons’ Gift Cards donated by Leo Adams Investments and a trip to Las Vegas donated by Mike Fair Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac in Smiths Falls. Thank you to Crain and Schooley Part of Arthur J. Gallagher Canada Limited for providing a Hole in One. Details Reality Inc.– Linda Hewson, provided more fun for our golfers as our Prize Cart Sponsor. Another lucky golfer won a hotel and car care package donated by the The Hinton Auto Group.

Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC was the Cart Sponsor for this Year’s GFK’s tournament Metroland Media was once again the Media Sponsor, helping to spread the news about the 3M Golf for Kids Sake Tournament.
