A GREAT day on the course, and all for such an important cause!
Our 3rd Golf Fore the Cure Tournament brought out 103 ladies with soon-to-be emptied wallets! Participants were given their “loot bags” and “booby cookies” pre-tournament, thanks to Mavis Tetlock, Ursula Nancekevill, Janice Bunn, and our wonderful Ladies section. A sea of pink left for a four-person scramble at 5 p.m. Our very first Pink Ball Plummet was at 7:30 p.m. on the ninth green with spectators viewing from the balcony.
The Golf Course Banquet Room was decorated beyond description - beautiful pink and white accents with cancer ribbon table runners specially made. The meal we shared was expertly prepared and all participants raved about it. After the meal, our Honourary Breast Cancer Survivor Kathy Wyatt spoke to all of us about her journey.
Prizes and draws were plenty thanks to our members as well as generous sponsors (see our Facebook page for the list of sponsors).
Many thanks to Paul and Karin Cotey and staff and our many volunteers for contributing to our success.
This year’s donation to Breast Cancer/Canadian Cancer Society is $5,130!
