Matthew Pearce, CEO of the Old Brewery Mission, says the funds will go beyond providing nutritious meals and a safe place to sleep for homeless men and women. We’re proud to say that by collaborating with other organizations, we’ve created a continuum of services that gives people direct access to the resources they need to leave homelessness behind for good says Pearce. Everyone who has contributed to the golf tournament today is a part of that.

After a sunny day on the greens, golfers attended an evening hosted by veteran sports reporter and media personality Paul Graif. Guest speaker and former Commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force, Lieutenant General (ret.) Yvan Blondindelivered heartfelt remarks about the Mission’s impact on homeless veterans. A video showing the story of Mario, a veteran who is no longer homeless thanks to the Old Brewery Mission, left no one unmoved.

Later, guests were treated to live musical performances by Montreal-based band The Old Mills, playing a mix of oldies and pop hits, reinvented with their unique bluesy-country sound.
