The 2022 Hawkins-Gignac Foundation Annual Charity Golf Tournament Was A Huge Success

The 11th annual tournament was held at the beautiful Walter Gretzky Municipal Golf Course in Brantford, Ontario, on September 16th. 120 golfers attended the day and enjoyed great weather, great golf, great food and great times! All proceeds from the event, from fees, silent auction, sponsors and donations will go directly to the Foundation for use in delivering our mission to continue educating every Canadian about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide and how you can protect your families.

The Hawkins-Gignac Foundation would like to extend a sincere thank you to all golfers, partners, sponsors, volunteers and the golf course. We can’t wait until next year!
