Nearly $14,500 in grants are available as Brock Township doles out the proceeds of its annual charity golf tournament.
The 19th annual event, held June 22 at Cedarhurst Golf Club in Beaverton, raised more than $13,250 with an additional $1,170 leftover from prior tournaments.
Applications open to all non-profit organizations that are planning a capital project that promotes the health, wellness and physical activity of local youth. Operating costs are excluded and interested groups must raise an amount equal to the grant request.
Submitted applications should include the estimated cost of the project, other fundraising efforts, expected completion date and the expected benefits for youth and the community.
A dozen local groups —Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Durham, Cannington Baseball Association, Sunderland Lions Community Theatre Group, Sunderland Public School, McCaskill’s Mills School Community Council, Beaverton Curling Club, Beaverton Skating Club, Brock Rugby Club, Beaverton Public School, Cannington Girl Guides and the Wilfrid Community Hall Board — split more than $13,000 for a variety of projects last year.
Application forms are available at the municipal office in Cannington or can be downloaded online at www.townshipofbrock.ca
The deadline to apply is Oct. 31 at 4 p.m.
