Elizabeth Kerklaan fronted First United Church’s 11th Annual Golf Tournament for the Homeless at the University Golf Course. Under clear skies, a full field of 144 golfers hit the fairways to help raise support for the city’s most vulnerable. Greeting them back at the clubhouse for the banquet and more fundraising games were Reverend Carmen Lansdowne and Rick Cluff, the evening’s emcee. The day of golf and camaraderie netted the organization $100,000 to help First United address the many challenges met by residents of the Downtown Eastside—poverty, mental illness, addiction, and a lack of shelter and housing. The record result pushed the tournament’s overall tally beyond the $600,000 mark.
Housing advocate Judy Graves joined tournament director Elizabeth Kerklaan for the annual Golf Tournament for the Homeless.
