The event was held on August 14, 2017 at the prestigious Peninsula Lakes Golf Club in Fenwick, Ontario. Over 180 golfers attended the tournament and played on the 27-hole course, and over 220 people enjoyed a first-class dinner hosted at the club by Performance Auto Group CEO Steve Alizadeh.
The popular event was organised and managed in its entirety by Performance Auto Group as presenting sponsor.

"The United Way Golf Tournament is considered one of the top fundraising events in the entire region. It raises funds for over 74 essential United Way of St. Catharines and District programs, and helps the organization run critical projects for communities-in-need. The event also helps finance nearly every medical research organization in Niagara, including those for cancer and heart disease," he said.
Bill said the tournament has been managed and presented by Performance Auto Group for the last 24 years, and is a vital part of the group's Drive Change initiative. "This event exemplifies our company's long-standing commitment to support community initiatives. For over three decades, we have single-handedly managed, organized and promoted The United Way of St. Catharines and District Golf Tournament, and have helped raised around $865,000 to-date from this one event. We are all very proud of this, and hope to continue organizing this event in future," he said.
Performance Toyota placed two vehicles on the greens during the tournament, including a RAV4 AWD SE SUV and an all-new C-HR XLE Premium. Both SUVs were very well received by everyone in attendance.
Performance Auto Group's organization of the United Way Golf Tournament is a part of the group's Drive Change initiative, which ensures that our organization gives back visibly to the communities which we serve.
