Sixteen teams of five teed off at the 24th annual Howie Meeker Charity Golf Classic for Special Olympics

Sixteen teams of five teed off at the 24th annual Howie Meeker Charity Golf Classic for Special Olympics at Storey Creek Golf Course last weekend. Meeker, a Hockey Hall of Famer and Order of Canada recipient, hosts the annual tournament to raise money for local special olympians.

All funds raised stay in the community and go towards training, equipment, travelling and coaching. Next year the Howie Meeker tournament celebrates its 25th year and Meeker turns 90.
