LANCASTER — Organizers of the 14th annual SD&G O.P.P. golf tournament are calling the event a huge success.

The event on July 15 at the Heritage Golf Club in Lancaster raised over $38,000.

That included an anonymous single donation of $25,000.

There were 130 golfers who took to the green.

All the money raised will be used for youth-based programs in South Glengarry and North Glengarry, including a snowsuit project, the Jumpstart Foundation and the North Glengarry Youth Center.

The tournament was put on in conjunction with a number of local groups and agencies.
