COLLINGWOOD, Ont. — Living Water Resort & Residences, in Collingwood, Ont., announced in mid-July that it has committed to donating $100,000 over multiple years to support scholarship programs and building developments at the South Georgian Bay campus of Georgian College. The donations will be raised from an annual golf tournament and various other initiatives, including support from the owner.
As of June 30, the resort has already raised up to $15,000 through its 1st Annual Cranberry Charity Golf Tournament, on its home course, that attracted dignitaries, sponsors and local businesses. It included a full day of golf, dinner and prizes.
The purpose of the Georgian College funding is to build a social, educational and employment enterprise. Scholarships will focus on entrepreneurship, which generates new local business developments, and hospitality, which provides employment opportunities.
Further to the funding, Living Water senior staff will act as guest trainers and mentors to the students.
“We are proud to be able to take our business as a mission, a mission to help to build a more profound and harmonious community. It is not about me or you, it is about us,” said Larry Law, president of Living Water Resort & Residences, in a release.
