Castle Vendor Appreciation Golf Tournament

Mississauga, ON – On Monday September 14th, 2015, The Club at North Halton played host to the 2015 Castle Building Centres Group Vendor Appreciation Golf Tournament. The tourney was held on a beautiful September day within the rolling greens of this perfectly groomed private golf course in the city of Georgetown, ON.

For the past six years, Castle has held this annual charity golf event benefiting the SickKids Foundation and continues to be a great success. This year’s event raised over $25,000.00 in charitable donations thanks to the generosity of Castle Valued Vendor Partners. SickKids is a health-care community dedicated to improving the health of children by providing the best in family-centred, compassionate care, to lead in scientific and clinical advancement, and to prepare the next generation of leaders in child health.

Over 150 vendor participants attended the event and had the opportunity to donate to a worthy cause, win great prizes and enjoy yet another perfect day on this picturesque course, in the company of their peers. Castle vendor, Eric Dake makes the journey all the way from Denver Colorado for the event each year.
