This year the Ivan Pretty Charity Scramble golf tournament chose Mission’s Fraser House Society as their charitable recipient.

The tournament was held on a spectacular day in September with over 100 golfers teeing up for raffles, draws, and dinner to help support this important service in Mission.

Close to $10,000 was raised for Fraser House’s community programs, helping youth, adults and families with substance use concerns.

Fraser House has a presence in all local schools, offering health and resilience building as well as counselling to students in need of support.

Substance use and addiction touches many lives. The Fraser House team is dedicated to providing support in Mission and also in the rural community.

Fraser House Society is contracted by Fraser Health Authority to provide substance use services in Mission and the surrounding areas. However, it needs to raise funds to support the important programs of adult and youth counselling, prevention and health promotion, and rural connections.

Fraser House is grateful to all supporters and in particular to Pretty Estates for choosing this charitable organization.
