On Tuesday, September 29, 146 golfers gathered at Granite Ridge Golf Course in Milton, Ontario to participate in Flanagan Foodservice‘s 32nd annual “We Care” Golf Tournament.

At this year’s event, which supports Friends of We Care, a Canadian non-profit foundation that raises funds through the foodservice and hospitality industry to send physically disabled children to Easter Seals camps across the country, $40,000 was raised.

“The response from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, many haven’t attended any foodservice events since March and were very grateful to the Flanagan team for hosting this event,” said Flanagan’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Barry Reid.

“To put on an event this size is always a challenge, particularly more so this year with all the COVID-19 protocols that had to be followed ensuring everyone’s safety.”

Reid thanked volunteers Ami Bondy, Steve Flanagan, Amber Recchia, Jackie Oakes, Shayne Keary, Ignace Nash and Trevor Cummings for their work, as well as Flanagan’s own Kim Thacker and Jacquie Ballagh.

He added, “Everyone can take a lot of pride in the fact that Flanagan’s was able to raise these funds while giving many customers and vendors an opportunity to come together for a worthy cause.”
