Jack Froese was among the 157 local farmers and supporters who golfed August 31 to raise $36,800 for the Union Gospel Mission at the annual B.C. Turkey and Eggs Charity Golf Tournament.

The turkey and egg producers have hosted the event every year since 2005 and have raised over $170,000 in that time to feed the hungry in Vancouver, New Westminster and Mission on a regular basis.

Brendan McLellan, a former client at the mission, spoke at the banquet that followed the golfing event to express thanks for the support of the farmers.

The golfing committee of Alf Wall, Bodo Goetzke and James Krahn also gave their thanks to the many farmers and suppliers who came out in support of the cause.
