Frontier Toyota Charity Golf Classic
The St. Boniface/St. Vital Kiwanis hosted the Frontier Toyota Charity Golf Classic in support of St.Amant on June 8, 2017 at St. Boniface Golf Course. This annual tournament, held in memory of Marcel Thompson, raised over $84,000 for accessible equipment for people with developmental disabilities and autism such as overhead lifts and custom bikes.
Longtime Kiwanis member Aurèle Foidart had this to say about the event, “Manitobans are very giving and this is especially true when it comes to support for works like St.Amant. Listening to Jessica and to see how happy she is that she has accessible equipment was priceless. For me, this truly shows the reason why we do this event. This is what being a Kiwanis member is all about!”
