The 39th annual Winspear Cup pro-am charity golf tournament brought together 72 professional and amateur golfers for a day on the links at Glen Meadows Golf and Country Club.

The July 17 tournament, supported by the Winspear family since 1973, had members from the Mary Winspear Centre join with the tournament’s organizers to raise funds for the Children’s Art and Music Fund at the centre.

“It was the first year the Winspear Cup partnered with a charity,” said Lynn Fanelli, development co-ordinator at the centre. “We were very happy to have raised $6,418 for the Children’s Art and Music Fund.”

This year the Winspear Cup had 18 teams of four with a pro on each team. Doug Petrie from Comox Golf Club and his team were the 2012 winners.
