accept a $640 cheque from Doreen Ashton Wagner
for the Chapter's official charity,
the Ottawa School Breakfast Program.
This past week Greenfield Services sponsored a hole at the 14th Annual Golf Tournament of the Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Ottawa Chapter.
The organizing committee had challenged sponsors to come up with creative ways to be kinder to the environment with this event, held at the picturesque Fairmont Chateau Montebello resort, which has an Audubon International-certified golf course.
The Greenfield Team took up the challenge by selling $5 mulligans on the course's difficult 14th-hole. No disposables were used, making this a simple, low-impact promotion for the environment. Even the hole signage will be re-used, thanks to innovative work by another sponsor, Miller McConnell Signs.
The company matched donations dollar-for-dollar and all proceeds went to the Chapter's official charity, the Ottawa School Breakfast Program.
