CAW event raises $93,000 for women’s shelters
London, Ontario – Former Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW) president Bob White held his first charity golf tournament in London, Ontario, to raise funds in support of two local area women’s shelters. The event raised $93,000 for Community House in London, and the Women’s Emergency Centre-Oxford in nearby Woodstock.
White was joined by CAW president Buzz Hargrove; 148 participants sold out the entire course.
Along with funds raised from the golf tournament, the CAW National office and seven CAW locals each donated $5,000 to the event. The Women’s Community House is the largest high-security shelter for abused women and their children in Canada.
