Coordinating an event isn’t the easiest thing to do. YOU have to organize people, scout locations, send invitations and a whole bunch of other pre-event tasks. During the event YOU play host/ess while still being on top of every little detail.

But if YOU are lucky, all of that work results in an event with an air of excitement; with a crowd full of smiles and an opportunity to connect with new and existing clients, donors, and friends, in an atmosphere of fun.

This, happened yesterday when Wilsons, held their fourth annual Golf Classic.

The Wilson family has been one of Nova Scotia’s leading business and philanthropic families since the 19th century. Recently the Wilson-Merriam Family Foundation made a gift to increase the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia’s capacity in the place of their roots, Cumberland-Colchester. The family business Wilsons, also made the Society the recipient of their annual golf tournament.

Yesterday, under the guidance of both family members and staff, they held a wonderful fundraiser to support the families in our province who need access to community supports.

With the weather playing along, over 140 golfers took to the links to play 18 holes. On the course they treated to snacks and on hole three, a brain quiz! Everyone finished the day with another summer tradition, a BBQ supper.

Thank YOU to Rose, Ian, Chris and the Wilson Family for their commitment to supporting people with dementia and their families. Thank YOU to the Wilson’s Staff who organized and made sure everyone had a great day yesterday!
