Have some fun doing good


Throughout the year, special fundraising events allow Canterbury friends and family to have fun while they’re contributing to a worthy cause.


On Saturday, May 21, 2016, in a tent, overlooking Clam Lake there were 190 guests in attendance who enjoyed a fabulous meal, dancing and socializing with friends and neighbors. For the first time at the Gala, we honored a few of Canterbury’s outstanding staff members with an “Above & Beyond Award.” The silent auction and wine pull were also a huge success.

In total more than $47,000 was raised for Canterbury’s Good Samaritan Fund in 2016. The 2017 event will take place on Saturday, October 28th at White Lake Oaks in White Lake.

On Thursday, June 8th, 100 golfers took the field at the Fountains Golf Course for the 9th Annual Good Samaritan Golf Outing. More than 450 golf balls were dropped from a helicopter hovering over the fairway prior to the Awards Dinner. At the Awards Dinner prizes were handed out to the First Place and Highest Scoring (aka Last Place) teams, as well winners of the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin contests.

In total more than $17,000 was raised for Canterbury’s Good Samaritan Fund. As you may know, this fund provides Canterbury residents with financial resources to stay in their homes should they exhaust their savings. In the last five years, more than $250,000 has been allocated from the fund to residents needing assistance.

We are extremely grateful for the continued commitment to Canterbury-on-the-Lake and those who call Canterbury home.


The Good Samaritan Golf Outing would not be possible without our generous sponsors. Companies and individuals have a variety of opportunities to become title sponsors, golf cart sponsors, or registration, bag drop, golf ball drop or hole sponsors, too.

For sponsorship information or information on the golf outing, please email Susan Hammersmith or call her at 248.674.5390.
