Henderson tournament brings significant economic impact to Smiths Falls

INAUGURAL TEAM HENDERSON PRO-AM BENEFITS MANY

MEDIA RELEASE: 07.10.2015

The Magenta Mortgage Pro-Am presented by Mike Fair Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac Ltd. in support of the Team Henderson 110% Club held at the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club on June 15th was a successful inaugural event that benefitted many. Brooke and Brittany Henderson would like to thank the sponsors, volunteers, participants and fans who made their inaugural Pro-Am successful.

Combined with the Pro-Am was the Canadian Women’s Tour Ontario Championship that was run by Golf Canada at the SFGCC on June 16th and 17th. Through the hard work and thorough planning of the Tournament Organizing Committee, those three days in June saw the first women’s professional golf tournaments played in Eastern Ontario outside of Ottawa – a memorable first for the Smiths Falls community. Team Henderson was responsible for bringing the Canadian Women’s Tour Ontario event to Smiths Falls, as well as bearing some of the costs of that tournament in addition to sponsoring the professionals who participated in the Magenta Mortgage Pro-Am.

David Dargie, Executive Director of the Team Henderson 110% Club observed, “Through the hard work of our volunteer Tournament Organizing Committee, our generous sponsors, and the many community members who played in the Pro-Am, volunteered for that tournament or the Canadian Women’s Tour Ontario event, Team Henderson was able to raise funds to assist Brooke & Brittany in their goal to play their way onto the LPGA Tour in 2016; support the operation of the first professional women’s golf tournament played outside of Ottawa; generate an estimated economic impact of $75,000 from the three days of tournament golf; contribute almost $14,000 from the Pro-Am alone to the local economy; donate $15,000 to the two charities chosen by Brooke and Brittany for the 2015 Pro-Am; and generate priceless media attention for the SFGCC, the Town of Smiths Falls, and our two charitable recipients: the Doefstrong Trust Fund and the Lanark County Support Services.”

Team Henderson would like to thank the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club staff and members for the use of their excellently conditioned course from June 15-17, especially General Manager Alan Feeley and Paul Cadeau, President of the SFGCC Board of Directors. Special thanks to Course Superintendent Ken Campbell and his grounds crew who had to battle the wettest June in a decade to keep the golf course in prime tournament condition. Thanks also to Denis Routhier and his staff for their food and beverage preparation and catering services.

The Smiths Falls and area community stepped up in a big way to support the three days of women’s professional golf. Through the hard work of Honorary Tournament Chair Dennis Staples, many hole sponsors signed on to support the Pro-Am. His work as the tournament’s ambassador was most valued. Various businesses and individuals donated prizes and items for the silent and live auctions, as well as provided in-kind services.

Special thanks to Frank Healey of Healey Transportation for the shuttle bus system that brought the hundreds of spectators to the SFGCC and then returned them to their cars parked at the County Fair Mall on all three tournament days. Officials from Golf Canada commented that the attendance at the Canadian Women’s Tour Ontario Championship was the largest they have experienced for this type of competition and the efficient transportation service provided by Healey Transportation was a crucial part of that success.

Thanks to the Pro-Am’s major sponsors: Kristopher Dolinki of Magenta Mortgage; Kristine Fair from Mike Fair Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac Ltd.; Kurtis Dolinki from the Ottawa International Airport Authority; Iain Anderson and Associates from Waterloo, Ontario; Ron Harrison from Cogeco Cable; Dave Schutte of Rogers Radio; TV Cogeco; and Ryland Coyne from Metroland Media.  Their leadership as major sponsors was key to generating operational funding.

The Team Henderson 110% Club was established in December, 2014 to raise funds to support Brooke and Brittany Henderson’s goal of competing on the LPGA Tour. The June 15th Pro-Am assisted in the pursuit of that goal, as well as giving back to the community that has supported the Henderson sisters over their formative years as competitive golfers.

Brooke and Brittany Henderson stated, “We are so happy that our first Pro-Am was able to generate $15,000 for the DoefStrong Trust Fund and the Lanark County Support Services. We play in many Pro-Ams on the Symetra  and LPGA Tours and recognize how much work goes into creating a successful event. We have been fortunate to have such great support from our community. We want to thank the many sponsors, volunteers, Pro-Am players and fans who made our inaugural event successful. Smiths Falls and Eastern Ontario will always be our home and we are proud to represent this area on the world golfing stage. Thanks to all those who made the June 15-17 tournaments happen!”
