The 12th Annual Ronan Realty Charity Golf Classic took place at Woodington Lake Golf Course in Tottenham on Thursday, August 16.

More than 200 golfers took to the links, in a best-ball scramble format, to raise funds for local charities including Matthews House Hospice, Contact Community Services, the local Food banks (Our Town – serving Tottenham and Beeton, and The Good Shepherd in Alliston), My Sister’s Place (the local women and children’s shelter), and Sunshine Kids.

Included on the roster that day was Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player, Travis Dermott, #23, who signed autographs, took pictures with golfers, and donated two signed jerseys for the live auction.

The day included a pie throwing and putting contest, raffle draws, Closest to the Pin, and a Hole-in-One vehicle donated by Trillium Ford Lincoln Ltd. There was also Italian artisan gelato by Cremahh, and a warm-up courtesy of Pure Impact Fitness of Beeton.

Coldwell Banker Ronan Realty founder Marc Ronan started the tournament to use an avenue of recreation, enjoyment and community spirit – all while helping local charities.

This year, 194 golfers and 210 guests for dinner, raised $21,000 in just one day. Proceeds will be turned over during a cheque presentation ceremony at the Ronan Realty Company Sales Rally” to be held at the Gibson Centre on September 18.

Over the past 12 years, the Ronan Realty Charity Golf Classic has raised close to $260,000.

Marc Ronan was born and raised in the Adjala Township. He entered the real estate business in 1982. He comes from a family of seven, and having enjoyed a successful career in real estate while giving back to the community, he started the Ronan Real Estate brand in 2007, which today is Coldwell Banker Ronan Realty, Brokerage, with more than 60 agents.

Marc’s mantra, “Doing business while giving back”, works well on the golf course, and everyone in attendance was happy to contribute to the overall success of the day.

 

Note: A previous version of the story reported $10,000 had been raised in this event, not $21,000 as reflected in the final figures.
