Giving is a hole-in-one for Good Shepherd

Hamilton’s Good Shepherd Centres are known for their passionate community efforts, and they were also the big winner at a golf tournament held in June by the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB). The Association presented a cheque to Good Shepherd for $6,729.92, the amount raised at 2018 RAHB Charity Golf Tournament.

“The real winner of the golf tournament is our community,” says June Brooke of Good Shepherd. “This generous donation will go a long way to supporting the services we provide.”

Good Shepherd is the largest provider of human and social services in the Greater Hamilton area. Its work is based on a commitment to restoring hope and dignity to the most vulnerable members of the community.

“Hamilton-Burlington REALTORS® enjoyed a beautiful day on the course, and the proceeds from that day will support vital programs and shelter for those at greatest risk,” says RAHB President Jack Loft, “It’s a wonderful win-win.”

Good Shepherd’s services includes emergency food and clothing services; emergency shelter for men, youth, women and children, and families; mental health crisis support; education; transitional and supportive housing programs; senior support; and hospice palliative care.

RAHB is proud supporter of local shelter-related organizations in the Greater Hamilton-Burlington and outlying regions in the Association’s market area. For more information, please visit www.rahb.ca/givingback/.

Teeing it High and Letting it Fly!

June 8 was an excellent day for Teeing it High and Letting it Fly!

RAHB members, supporters and tournament sponsors turned out to enjoy a day of golf and prizes at the annual Charity Golf Tournament at Copetown Woods Golf Club.  The weather cooperated and made for a perfect day for a round of golf!
