2016 Upstream Ottawa Youth Matters Golf Tournament Recap

On Friday, June 3, 2016, Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions had the opportunity to participate in the 2016 Youth Matters Golf Tournament as a top sponsor. The tournament was organized by Upstream Community Mental Health Support.

Polanco co-owner Steve Renfrew, along with staff members Zach Renfrew, Derek Varrin, and Olivia Winch played through 18 holes for the great cause of mental health. The weather was beautiful, not too hot with a light breeze. An amazing time was had by all— Zach even won longest putt after sending the ball in from over 50ft! Most importantly, it was Upstream’s most successful tournament to date and they raised over $24 000 to support their mental health initiatives.
