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.

Canterbury's 20th Annual Gala - "Puttin' On the Ritz" was a HUGE success!

On Saturday, October 28, 200 people attended the Gala held at White Lake Oaks. Local favorite, Dave Bennett and his band, brought the house down with their toe-tapping performance.

More than $49,000 was raised for Canterbury's Terrace Garden Project on the third floor of The Pavilion. Once built, the Terrace Garden will provide a secure outdoor setting for our residents to safely spend time enjoying outdoor activities, visiting with family and friends and gardening.

Five of Canterbury's stellar team members were recipients of the 2nd annual "Above & Beyond" awards. The award winners were Lauren Dickie, Jarred Douglas, Jamie Martin, Tanya Smith and Dennis Wilton.

Thank you so much to this year's sponsors and attendees, without your support we would not be nearly halfway to our $100,000 fundraising goal for the Terrace Garden.

We have already started planning next year's Gala! More details are coming soon.

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.
