August 21, 2015
Winnipeg Airports Authority would like to thank all the golfers and generous sponsors who came out to support our 13th Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of the Firefighters Burn Fund. Together, we raised $25,000 to help burn survivors and their families. Since the tournament began in 2003, we’ve donated over $285,000 to the Firefighters Burn Fund.
Congratulations to Nick Vodden, Chris Laing, Aaron Siebert and Rob Bachart who outplayed the competition with a series of exceptional drives, chips and putts on their way to the best team score of the day, on what turned out to be a wonderful day for a round of golf.
The charity golf tournament would not be possible without the kind and generous support from our sponsors, including our Lead Sponsor, CIBC.
