Waubetek's 18th Annual Golf Charity Classic

On Friday, August 16, 2019, the Waubetek Business Development Corporation will once again host the Waubetek Charity Golf Classic at the Rainbow Ridge Golf Course on beautiful Manitoulin Island!  Proceeds from the golf tournament will be donated to the 2020 Waubetek Student Bursary Fund which supports Aboriginal post-secondary students in business related studies.  With the help of our sponsors over the past years, this event has been able to assist 85 Aboriginal post-seondary students through $48,000.00 in bursaries.
