WCTA Silent Auction Raises >$4,500!

by WCTA staff

With over $10,000 worth of contributions from turf management industry suppliers and service providers, our 23rd Annual Silent Auction held during the 60th Anniversary WCTA Conference and Trade Show at the Victoria Conference Centre February 14-16, 2024, raised $4,560 for turf research projects!

In its 23rd year, the WCTA Silent Auction has played a huge role in generating funds for valuable turf research projects supporting professional golf and sportsfield managers in western Canada and beyond.  Funding for this institutional research is distributed through carefully developed priorities, is specific to Canadian turf management needs across various sectors and is not the kind of research done by suppliers.

WCTA Executive Director, Jerry Rousseau stated, “Combined with 10% of WCTA member dues, 30% of any annual net profit and other fundraisers like the Pat Dooley Memorial Tournament, there are few groups who contribute more funding to turf research in Canada than the WCTA.”  He added, “If that sounds like bragging, it’s not, but the WCTA is very proud that through thick and thin, our members have remained committed to furthering our industry and their own careers by driving these important and valuable initiatives.”
