County residents honoured the memory of a man who served this community for about 15 years as an officer with the Prince Edward OPP detachment before being promoted to staff sergeant at the Red Lake Detachment in 2001.

Brent Bennett, 51, died this spring, leaving his wife Diane and three children.

Saturday, Sept. 20, friends of officer Bennett gathered for a day of golf, a dinner, and fundraising at Wellington on the Lake Golf Course and at the Legion.

“As a tribute to Brent, who was very much involved with youth and sports in both communities he served, money was raised for the Canadian Tire Jump Start Program, Prince Edward County and the Cops & Kids program in Red Lake,” said Anthony Mann, PEC Community Services Officer.

The $6,000 raised will be split to each program and the Jump Start Program will also match the donation to forward $6,000 to help County youth play sports.

“This is what Brent would have wanted,” said Mann. “To see kids at play.

Mann, one of the organizers of the event, said the committee thanks the many people, businesses and volunteers who helped make the Brent Bennett Classic possible.
