LPMA Golf Tournament Supports Salvation Army Centre of Hope

by The Salvation Army in Canada

 When members of the London Property Management Association hit the links at the 11th annual LPMA fall golf tournament on September 8th, they were doing their part to help Londoners in need find permanent housing.

This year’s proceeds will benefit The Salvation Army Centre of Hope, a downtown shelter that provides emergency beds and a variety of other support services to men, women and youth in our community.

Brenda Trineer, chair of the golf tournament and director of the board, says the annual fundraiser has always focused on supporting local charities that rely on donations to fulfill their mission.

“The Salvation Army Centre of Hope is one of the larger charities we have supported so far,” says Trineer, “but they are really tied in with our interest in housing and they have a substantial need.”

Funds raised by this year’s tournament will directly support the centre’s housing-related programs.

The tournament was held at FireRock Golf Course and was sold out early. Centre Executive Director Nancy Powers participated in the event and accepted a cheque for $15,000 for the centre.

“It’s always a sold-out event,” says Trineer. “The support we get from members is amazing.”
