MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Maple Ridge Community Management (MRCM), an Associa company, recently presented a $25,000 cheque to The Salvation Army. The money was raised at its annual golf tournament in July at the Glen Eagle Golf Club in Caledon, Ontario.
The event was supported by close to 50 sponsors and featured more than 200 golfers comprised of MRCM employees along with professionals (engineers, auditors, lawyers) and trades who service communities under MRCM's administration.
"This tournament has come a long way from when it began in 2006 with a few employees on a 9-hole course sharing pizza and wings after the round," remembers MRCM Vice President Communication & Administration Luanne Crilly. "We're proud to have continued it as an annual event that benefits such a worthwhile cause."
