The team at Save-On-Foods, together with their supplier partners, helped to raise $581,546 at the 22nd annual Save-On-Foods Charity Golf Tournament in Surrey, B.C.

The sold-out tournament saw 360 golfers come together to support the five children’s hospitals the charity supports in Western Canada: BC Children’s Hospital; Alberta Children’s Hospital; Stollery Children’s Hospital; the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatchewan; and the Children’s Hospital of Manitoba.

“Thanks to the generosity of our amazing supplier partners from across Western Canada, together, we’re helping to support the kids in our communities,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones. “There’s nothing more important than the health of our kids, and our fantastic supplier community shares our commitment to children and their families.”
