The Bulimia Anorexia Nervosa Association would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the membership and Executive of Unifor Local 200 for their gracious support again this year. On October 12, 2013, BANA Interim Executive Director Luciana Rosu-Sieza attended the follow-up ceremony to the Union’s annual golf tournament and, along with 7 other local charities, received a donation in the amount of $5000.00. It is the support of organizations like yours that help to ensure the ongoing success of BANA and our programs and services within this community. Thank you so very much.

Eight local children’s charities are a total of $40,000 richer this week thanks to one of the most successful golf tournaments in the area.
Organizers of the 18th annual Children’s Golf Tournament In Memory of Frank McAnally – which attracted 200 golfers Aug. 30 at Roseland Golf Course – donated the money Thursday to local groups.
“We’re quite happy,” Dan Cassady, financial secretary for Unifor Local 200, said Friday. “We have a real dedicated group of volunteers who do all the work. It’s basically a machine. And we have fantastic sponsors.
“It’s a community thing. It’s not just Local 200.”
Over the tournament’s 18 years, Unifor Local 200 (formerly CAW Local 200) has donated $580,000 to help area children.
This year’s recipients are: the Autism Society Windsor-Essex, the Bulimia Anorexia Nervosa Association, the Child Abuse Prevention Council of the Windsor Essex Children’s Aid Society, Computers for Kids, the Children’s Leukemia Foundation, the Grief Works Children’s Program of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Jump Start, and the Sunshine Foundation’s Dreams for Kids.
The golf tournament’s name was changed in 2009 to honour long-time local labour activist Frank McAnally, who died of cancer at the age of 63 in 2008.
