Nikkei Place Charity Golf Day raises over $130,000 for dementia-friendly programs!

On Friday, May 27, 2022, we hosted the Nikkei Place Charity Golf Day at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby!

Every dollar raised at the event helps fund dementia-friendly outreach programs run by Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society, a Burnaby based charity. Click here to learn more about these programs. 

It was our first golf event in two years due to the pandemic. Despite being smaller in scale, our sponsors and supporters rallied for our cause, and enabled us to exceed our fundraising goals! We raised over $66,000 in net proceeds before DOUBLING it to over $130,000 thanks to our matching donors Ken & Junko Shinozaki. The 2022 Golf Committee greatly appreciates the tremendous generosity of all our sponsors, donors, golfers and volunteers for answering the call to Beat the Odds of Dementia! Together we are changing the lives of seniors for the better.

Congratulations to Our Winning Teams!
