(June 5, 2017 – Langley, B.C.) Together with their supplier partners, the team at Save-On-Foods helped to raise $581,546 at last week’s 22nd annual Save-On-Foods Charity Golf Tournament at Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey, B.C.

"Thanks to the generosity of our amazing supplier partners from across Western Canada, together, we’re helping to support the kids in our communities,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones. “There’s nothing more important than the health of our kids, and our fantastic supplier community shares our commitment to children and their families.”
