The 2022 S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation charity golf tournament raised more than $122,791 towards supporting underfunded and unfunded community support programs.
The tournament, which is in its 18th year, was held at Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club in Richmond with over 100 golfers from the community in attendance. Proceeds will go to S.U.C.C.E.S.S programs to help maintain and enhance services with partial or no government funding, such as programs for immigrants, youth, women, families, and seniors.
“Since its launch in 2005, the tournament has become an important charity event for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. with more than $1 million raised to date,” said Jason Lam, newly appointed S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation board chair.
The foundation extended gratitude to its sponsors which included EasyPark, TD Canada Trust, and Vancity.
“We cannot thank enough for the donors and sponsors for their unwavering support to programs and services that are so much in need for the community. Your generosity will enable us to continue to serve youth, families, and seniors,” said Queenie Choo, chief executive officer of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.
