The David W. Banks Memorial Golf Tournament
in Support of L’Arche Halifax

As many of you know, our friend and supporter David passed away in 2019, and we wanted to honor his role as one of the founding members of our annual golf tournament by renaming it in his memory.

It was David who came up with the original concept of an annual tournament to help raise funds for L’Arche Halifax and many of the teams and golfers he recruited are still golfing with us many years later. David was aware that we would be making this change and he was grateful to be remembered in this way.

A pre-round BBQ, silent auction, grand prize raffle, 50-50 cash raffle, participant appreciation gifts, and, as always, great team prizes will take place after golf along with hors d'oeuvres and drinks!

We are excited to offer you this great experience in support of L’Arche Halifax and we hope to see you there.

If you are unable to make it there are several sponsorship opportunities available and you can also donate an item for our auction.
