TELUS Community Board [view video]
Telus has provided UGC Junior Golf Society with generous grants in prior years. Those grants were made because the mission and focus of our Society is consistent with those of the Telus Community Investment program. As noted by Telus, their philosophy is “… to help build healthy, sustainable communities, with a particular focus on empowering youth to reach their full potentia l… so that they can make a positive difference in their own lives and those of others.” We believe that our program delivers those benefits to the inner city school participants and their families.
UGC Tuesday Ladies Golf Club
Our Tuesday Ladies Club continues to provide funds to be used towards our ongoing program of introducing the wonderful game of golf to Vancouver's inner school kids. This year we are actively working with 24 kids from Grandview Elementary. The generous spirit the ladies have towards our program prompts us to wish each of them a lifetime of great golf at the University Golf Course.
The UGC MWMC has designated us as their charity since 2007. They run a 50/50 draw at various luncheons and in addition they recommend individual members donate whenever possible. Members of this club are also members of our Volunteers Program. Our seniors golf club supports the efforts of the UGC Junior Golf Society in their efforts to give a real golf experience to kids who ordinarily would not have such an opportunity. The association with KIDSAFE, an organization that provides safe havens and interesting activities for vulnerable students in Vancouver’s East Side, is wonderful and should help kids build confidence and self esteem while at the same time expose them to a new sport.
