2023 Lend-A-Hand Tournament

Stay tuned for information on our upcoming tournament.


2022 Tournament Summary

It was a superb day for all concerned, as the golfing community finally works its way back to a greater degree of normalcy post-pandemic, with no masking and indoor dining. On Tuesday, June 28th a turnout of 18 golf teams enjoyed a terrific day on the course for the 35th annual “Lend-a-Hand” Charity Golf Classic, generously supported for the third time by The Cooperators. This year’s event was held at the beautiful and expertly manicured Century Pines Golf Club in Troy, Ontario.

The fun-filled day saw golfers enjoy a “classic” continental breakfast and BBQ buffet lunch, along with amazing raffle table prizes and some healthy on-the-course competition, including a hole-in-one challenge and professional long drive champion. CDBA sincerely appreciates the hard work of its 3 dedicated volunteers all day long – Kim McFadden, Amanda Scott, and Sawyer James.
