Community Salutes Emergency Services at Roseland Golf FORE First Responders Event
One hundred and sixty golfers, made up of emergency services personnel, local business representatives and corporate sponsors, along with individuals who simply wanted to show their support, took to the sculptured grounds of Roseland Golf and Curling Club today in the golf FORE First Responders event. This is the second year of a four-year fundraising commitment leading up to the 2022 Can-Am Police-Fire Games.
“This is a sold-out event that’s bringing our community together, safely, to celebrate our first responders,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “And, given what we’re all going through these days, I can’t think of a timelier event to show our support for those who are on the front lines protecting us all.”
The City of Windsor is hosting the Can-Am Police Fire Games in 2022, and to help raise awareness as well funds to cover event costs, Roseland committed to hosting an annual golf day each year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event, originally scheduled for June 22, was postponed until today, and numerous precautions were put in place to ensure players could be kept as safe as possible.
The Canadian Mental Health Association is the Games charity partner and Team Goran of RE/MAX Care Realty is the four-year Presenting Sponsor for the golf series. The community champion roster of partners includes Rose City Ford, Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation, LiUNA!625, Ground Effects, Second Chance CPR, CUPE Local 543, and RBC Wealth Management Allison & Martinello Group. Newly announced official coffee for the 2022 Games is Tim Hortons, and the official Whiskey of the Games is our homegrown J.P. Wiser’s. Special thank-you to all of the supporters of our first responders.
