Other beneficiaries included TJ Stables’ “Acceptional” Riders Program and three local soup kitchens.
The funds were raised through the club’s annual Our Lady of Fatima Festival, comprising of skeet shooting, a soccer tournament, parade celebrations, mass, dinner, and a dance, which took place back in June of 2019.
For over 40 years the club has been organising this event for the Chatham-Kent community to enjoy free of charge. Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation is proud to be one of the proceed recipients, and the team is looking forward to attending the event next year!
