It was one of the hottest days of the year without a cloud in sight, and lush green surroundings making it a dream day for a round of golf at the beautiful Hazelmere Golf and country Club, in South Surrey. It was Mayor Linda Hepner’s 3rd Annual Golf tournament on July 6th 2017, and the whole place was buzzing with excitement as guests were welcomed with a lovely BBQ style lunch to begin the day.
Waves of golf carts zipped off for tee off, signaling the start of the tournament.
The Surrey Homelessness & Housing Society occupied the mighty 11th hole, as one of this year’s hole sponsors. As advocates for the SHHS, staff were able to engage on the topic of homelessness in Surrey and discuss the SHHS impact with a makeup of teams stopping by. It followed with some insightful questions, and the SHHS staff were more than enthusiastic to answer them. Golfer’s grabbed refreshments and a pair of “Your City Sports” socks, a collaboration with Carolyn Colwell, and they were off to the next hole.
Between answering the golfer’s questions and enjoying the sunshine, the end of the day approached quickly. The SHHS was pleased to be a part of this fantastic event, until next year!
