Lethbridge, AB – A home is the foundation for a healthy, financially-stable family. With the help of the 5th Annual sutton group - lethbridge Habitat for Humanity Golf Tournament, a couple with two young children will have the opportunity to build a new future. This year’s tournament raised over $18,000 and since 2014, Associate Broker/Co-Owner Trish Lyons, Broker/Co-Owner Audrey King, their staff and REALTORS® have raised a total of $92,000 for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
“This tournament is a natural fit for sutton group – lethbridge,” says Trish Lyons. “It is a great way to raise money for a charity whose focus is building decent, affordable housing for low-income, working families. This was the fifth consecutive year that we hosted the event. More than 80 golfers joined us this summer for a fun-filled day of golf followed by a fabulous prime rib dinner at the Henderson Lake Golf Course right here in Lethbridge.”
Trish is grateful to everyone who worked behind the scenes to make the day so successful. “We get such great support from our community and from our tournament committee, who manage fund raising, recruiting golfers and collecting prizes from local businesses.”
Habitat for Humanity Lethbridge has built five new homes for low-income families and renovated one other property since 2011. According to the charity’s website, “surveys of Habitat homeowners show improved grades, better financial health, parents who are more sure that they can meet their family’s needs. Wherever we work, we witness tangible evidence that strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities.”
Volunteers are now needed to help with the construction of the latest project. Individuals and groups are invited to sign up for this uniquely rewarding, hands-on volunteer work by visiting www.habitatlethbridge.ca.
