FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, June 29, 2017
Innisfil, ON – The Town of Innisfil is proud to announce that this year’s Mayor’s Golf Tournament has raised just over $50,000 for the community.
“Yesterday’s tournament was a smashing success, and we owe it to all the golfers, sponsors, donors, National Pines Golf Club and our volunteers,” said Innisfil Mayor Gord Wauchope. “The best part about this is all the proceeds go into local initiatives to make our community an even better place.”
The funds were generated by 148 golfer registrations, over fifty sponsorships and donations, a silent auction and other fundraising activities held during the event.
The tournament’s proceeds will go towards supporting Innisfil’s not-for-profit organizations, community groups and individuals through the two Innisfil community funds called the Inspiring Innisfil Fund and the Economic and Community Development Fund. Information about applying for a grant and past recipients is available on the Town’s website.
Major Tournament Sponsors
Premier Sponsors - Belle Aire Shores (Fernbrook Homes, Zancor Homes, Pristine Homes) and Friday Harbour

Community Fund Background
In 2013, the Town of Innisfil Council and The Town of Innisfil Administration created two community funds: the Inspiring Innisfil Fund and the Economic and Community Development Fund. Supporting the Inspiring Innisfil 2020 strategic plan, these funds give back to the town by supporting local groups and organizations. As the Town of Innisfil works towards financial sustainability, these funds will have a major impact on local community groups and organizations.
