2014 World Partnership Golf a SuccessJul 09, 2014
Mother nature was on our side this past Monday for the World Partnership Golf held at The Quarry Golf Club here in Edmonton. Every year, Orbis sponsors this tournament as its signature partner and participates as players and volunteers. This year at the Orbis hole we had a great time giving away samosas, Orbis branded hot sauce and Rag & Bone bags where all proceeds of the bags went to the Right to Play organization.
World Partnership Golf was launched nationally in 2000 by Aga Khan Foundation Canada as a fun and engaging way for Canadians to raise funds and awareness about international development initiatives that help poor and vulnerable communities in Africa and Asia. The support and commitment by the players, volunteers and organizers came through on Monday as this year's total funds collected reached $460,000 ($60,000 more than 2013).
We look forwarded to supporting this event again in 2015!
