The Willow Foundation Golf Tournament

On May 26, I attended the 9th Annual Willow Foundation Golf Tournament in Burlington. The Willow Foundation External Link is a non-profit, registered charitable organization that raises funds to enhance the quality of life of seniors and disabled adults in Halton Region’s three long-term care homes  and adult day programs .

This year’s tournament was very successful, raising over $36,000 for Halton seniors. I would like to thank all those who participated in the event and who took the time to support the work of the Willow Foundation. Your generous contributions will enrich the quality of life for residents at Allendale in Milton, Creek Way Village in Burlington, Post Inn Village in Oakville and for seniors and adults with special needs in our Regional adult day programs including Friend’s Landing, Milton Place, and Silver Creek Place.

At Halton Region we are committed to providing services and supports that meet the needs of seniors in our community. As part of this commitment, Regional Council approved The Citizen’s Priorities-Halton Region’s 2011-2014 Action Plan which included Halton seniors as a key regional priority area.

By listening to the needs of our community members and by working together with organizations like the Willow Foundation, we can ensure that Halton remains a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
