On June 24th, 2017, Fanshawe Golf Course was host to the Chris Holland Golf Tournament. Over 100 Trojan friends and family members teed off in memory of Chris, husband of loved and well-respected Trojan Associate Brenda Holland. Chris lost his battle with cancer in 2015 prompting the event organized in his honour to raise funds for St. Joseph’s Hospice of London.
St. Joseph’s Hospice is a charitable organization that exists to create a community that honours people as they journey to this life’s end and to provide a haven where the palliative, the caregiver and the bereaved experience compassion, hope and healing.
Trojan was a proud sponsor of the event, and through the generosity of those close to Brenda and Chris, $6,118 was raised.
The event was a huge success complete with perfect weather, prizes, a delicious meal, and a moose?! In the golfing world of Chris and friends, it is tradition that if a 10 is scored on a hole, the offender is required to run about the green with both hands at his or her temple, fingers extended to mimic antlers. Moose calls were welcome, but not required.
