MARKHAM, ON, June 27 /CNW/ - The 13th Annual Drive Straight(R) Charity
Golf Tournament will be held on Wednesday, June 27th at Mandarin Golf and
Country Club, Markham.
Ontario Community Council on Impaired Driving (OCCID) has organized the
tournament as a fundraiser for thirteen years and now provides Drive
Straight(R) as an awareness program to tournament organizers as a way of
promoting safe, sober driving all summer long.
Executive Director Anne Leonard expressed concern over the recent
apparent increase in impaired driving, "We had been seeing improvements in
this issue for two decades, but recent incidents suggest a call for
re-focusing in 2008."
The Drive Straight(R) tournament has raised almost $290,000 since its
inception, supporting sober driving in Ontario. This year, OCCID gratefully
acknowledges corporate and union sponsors: CAW, CWTA, Diageo Canada, Labatt
Breweries Ontario, Molson Canada, and Yamaha Motor Canada.
