Women Golfing for Women

Cardinal Golf Group (Craigowan)
It is our pleasure to announce the 22ndAnnual Zonta Club of Woodstock Golf Classic. Our Classic will once again be held at Craigowan Golf Club on Monday, June 3th, 2019.
Historically, the Zonta Golf Classic has raised over $390,000
to assist women in Oxford County, including $18,500 net proceeds in 2018!
We are very excited about a change for this year! In recognition of Zonta International’s 100thanniversary in November — our club members have decided to give a portion of this year’s proceeds to the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto. This is to broaden our outreach beyond our county in this 100th year but still serve to support Oxford County residents.
The records for the past five years show a total of 697 children from our county have been served at SickKids. If the Zonta Golf Classic has net proceeds of $15,000, SickKids would receive $5,000 and our club projects $10,000. Over the $15,000 mark, we would share that balance on an equal basis. Our donation will go to the Possibilities Fund (highest priority needs).
Through the generous support of individuals, businesses, golfers and volunteers, the Zonta Golf Classic net proceeds enables our club to award bursaries and provide chemotherapy kits and emergency personal care items at the Woodstock Hospital. Our club financially supports female-focused programs at Big Brothers Big Sisters Go Girls program, Domestic Abuse Service Oxford, Ingamo Homes, Children’s Aid Society, Canadian Mental Health Oxford and others. We are very proud of our ZONTA SAYS NO campaign which strives to end violence against women. We partner with members of Oxford County’s DART committee (Domestic Assault Review Team) to bring awareness to this issue each year from November 25thto December 10th.
