Brrr… it’ s cold out there! To ensure that community members who are hungry, homeless and hurting receive the help they need to stay safe and warm this winter and beyond, SOURCES is hosting our 8th annual Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) to raise awareness and money for our social wellness programs. This year’ s CNOY will be a VIRTUAL-ONLY EVENT taking place Friday, February 19 to Sunday, February 21, 2021. Anytime during that three-day period, we encourage you to complete your 2km/5km WALK in your own community, following the recommendations of our Provincial Health Officer and local health authorities. We acknowledge that this event and our work takes place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Kwantlen, Katzie and Semiahmoo First Nations.
For the past 31 years, the Semiahmoo Rotary Charity Golf Tournament has raised more than $1. 4 million to fund many community projects. Normally held in June, this year’s golf tournament has been postponed until Tuesday, September 08 and modified for Covid-19 safety. “Although this event was at risk of being cancelled earlier this year, the incredible news is that it’s now sold out with 144 golfers attending and, for the first time ever, there are two ways in which members of the public can participate and support their community at the same time, ” explains David Young, CEO of SOURCES.
Keep your golf swing in good shape because the Semiahmoo Rotary Club’ s 31st Annual Charity Golf Tournament is a GO! For the third year in a row, the fundraising sporting event will benefit SOURCES. Proceeds will be directed to the community-based non-profit organization’ s Comfort and Care during COVID-19 response fund.
SOURCES will continue to do our best to deliver our essential social services, ensuring that the most vulnerable members of community are taken care of while maintaining the health, safety and wellness of our dedicated staff and volunteer team. To provide help and hope to the increasing number of people who need it during the COVID-19 pandemic, our intent is to apply funds raised strategically to areas of critical need.
