READ Saskatoon Announces their PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy 2015 presented by Conexus Credit Union

Saskatoon, May 26, 2015 – READ Saskatoon is proud to announce Conexus Credit Union has renewed their sponsorship for the READ Saskatoon PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy 2015 to be held Monday, September 14 at the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club.

“Conexus Credit Union really understands the importance of literacy in our community,” says Sheryl Harrow-Yurach, Executive Director of READ Saskatoon. “They have made a three-year commitment to the PGI, and several Conexus staff volunteer their valuable expertise in our financial, family, and adult literacy programs.”

READ Saskatoon aims to raise $65,000 through PGI 2015 sponsorships and registrations to provide free literacy programming in Saskatoon and around the province.

“The PGI’s an awesome event,” says Brad Kuan, PGI 2015 Chairperson. “It’s driven by fun and enhanced by a real sense of community around READ Saskatoon.” One week after opening golfer registration, the PGI 2015 is already 60% sold.

This year’s theme is “Superheroes!” which means great costumes on golf day and the opportunity to recognize the Superheroes in our community. “Each year we work with thousands of people in our community and around the province,” says Harrow-Yurach. “These donors, volunteers, businesses, community partners, and literacy learners are the real superheroes of Saskatchewan. They put our mission and vision to work every day.”

To register to golf, or for more information about sponsorship, please call 306 652 5448 or visit www.READSaskatoon.com.

The PGI Golf Tournaments for Literacy was founded by celebrated CBC broadcaster and journalist Peter Gzowski in 1986 to raise funds for literacy. The READ Saskatoon PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy began in 2007, making this the tournament’s ninth year.

READ Saskatoon is a volunteer literacy organization that works with adults, families, and community. It has been working to increase literacy skills in our community for over 35 years.
