The Matt Duchene Charity Classic was a swinging success.

The sixth annual golf tournament took place Thursday night at the Pinestone Resort. While all the money raised is still being totalled, the final amount will exceed $50,000.

The Nashville Predator forward and Haliburton native  Duchene was there for the event, and he brought his wife and son.

Local MPP Laurie Scott attended and along with a large group of local golfers, auction items helped with the overall fundraising initiative. 

The day included a hole-in-one contest, lunch and dinner and other contest prizes.

It was hosted by Moose FM’s own Rick Lowes.
