Zonta Classic 2018

Women Golfing for Women

June 13, 2018

21st Annual Zonta Classic

Zonta Clubs in Southern Ontario have been hosting “women’s only” golf tournaments to raise money for women’s health issues for more than twenty years now. It began in 1993 when the Zonta Club of Kitchener Waterloo hosted the original event, a tournament in honour of Betty Thompson, a charter member of their club (Miss Betty from Romper Room), who had developed breast cancer. In 1998 they challenged other Zonta Clubs to follow suit. To date, over $2,000,000 has been raised.
