Wow! Thank you to the golf members at Rattlesnake Golf & Country Club for raising money again this year for a number of charities in Halton. They managed to raise about $100,000 for 13 agencies, the Burlington Food Bank being one of them. Your support is needed and appreciated so much especially now and we can’t thank you enough for including us in your event.
