On Wednesday, September 21, 2016, ERTH Corporation hosted the EDA Western District’s fourth annual “Power of Golf Fore Charity” golf tournament at Craigowan Golf Club in Woodstock, Ontario. Not only did the last day of summer 2016 fall on a beautiful day for golf, the tournament was a huge success for a local charity. We are pleased to announce that the tournament raised approximately $20,000 for the United Way Oxford.
