History of the Mayors’ Challenge Golf Tournament
The concept of the Mayors’ Challenge originally began in 1983, when the Mayor of Quinte West (formerly Trenton) challenged the Mayor of Belleville to a game of golf. Each mayor selected his own foursome and came out for a day of enjoyment and to support this charitable event. Over the years, the winner has bounced back and forth between the two cities. However, there has always been a great spirit of camaraderie and it has been a fun-filled day for all. Evidence of this is the continued support of the mayors, as well as the many volunteers, golfers, sponsors and prize donors who continue to be involved each year.
Since its inception, this tournament has resulted in substantial donations for the direct benefit of the people supported by Community Living Belleville and Area. The proceeds help to make it possible for the people we support to be an active and significant part of the community in which they live. The events and activities people attend are individually tailored to meet each person’s unique needs and personal goals.
In 2004, a new twist was added to the tournament when we invited the Mayor of Prince Edward County and the Warden of Hastings County to join in on the action. They agreed to come out for a day of friendly competition and camaraderie and have done so every year since then. We are pleased this year to have confirmed the participation of Mayor Taso Christopher (Belleville), Mayor Jim Harrison (Quinte West), Warden Rodney Cooney (Hastings County) and Mayor Robert Quaiff (Prince Edward County).
