For nearly three decades, 32 Division has been a staunch supporter of Ronald McDonald House.

Past and present Division members get together every summer at Golding Park for a slo-pitch tournament to raise funds for the facility that accommodates 81 families of serious ill children.

A total of nine teams took part in this year’s tournament, including a guest side from 12 Division that won the competition.

There was also a guest team from TAVIS this year.

On October 6, Superintendent Sam Fernandes and Constable Tammy Shewcheno handed over a cheque for $4,002 to Ronald McDonald House.

“We have been doing this event for 28 years,” said Fernandes.

“That speaks to our commitment to Ronald McDonald House and the great work they do in ensuring that families are taken care of while their children are receiving medical treatment at nearby hospitals.”

To date, 32 Division has raised over $153,402 for Ronald McDonald House through the slo-pitch tournament.
