The sold out event drew more golfers than any year previous and raised more than $20,000 to support marginalized girls and woman in Nepal and here in Canada.

Held at Sunset Ranch Golf Course, the evening included nine holes of golf, a pie contest and of course wine tasting.

Organized by Her International president Kevin Edgecombe, the event went off without a hitch and the fundraising goal was met.
