Golf Fore a Cure set to tee off at Redstone

Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure is ready to tee-off at the Redstone Resort Golf Course on Thursday

Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure is ready to tee-off at the Redstone Resort Golf Course on Thursday, and it’s not too late to sign up or make a donation.

Organizers Deborah de Tremaudan and Mari Conradie encourage foursomes to join up and call the Redstone pro shop to make a tee time and join the fun. Last year in its inaugural round, over 80 golfers participated, raising over $3,200 for the B.C. Breast Cancer Foundation.

“This was such a fun event, and from all the extra help this year it sounds like things are on track for another great success,” said de Tremaudan in an email.

The event will be a four-person scramble, and players can enter as a team or individuals. Another goal of Golf Canada and Golf Fore the Cure to encourage new golfers to hit the fairways in an effort to “Grow the Game.”

Among the many prizes from local businesses, there is also a special draw for a “New” golfer, as well as a trip to Las Vegas to see Celine Dion courtesy of Subaru, and a $10,000 hole-in-one competition from Intact.

“Our volunteers have been out there busy gathering some absolutely amazing prizes for this event,” added de Traumadin. “If you’re a skier, golfer, hiker, back country enthusiast, there could be prizes for all interests.”

Golf Fore the Cure was created by Golf Canada to drive women’s participation in the game of golf by partnering with the Canadian Cancer Society in an effort to raise awareness and fundraising components to support the fight against breast cancer.

Golf Fore the Cure is all about using the sheer power of women playing the game of golf to make a difference.

Volunteers from across the country help raise money and assist in a very worthy cause that is literally close to many women’s hearts – the fight against breast cancer.

For those interested, you can register for the event and send invites to your friends and family for donations as well.

Fundraising efforts will be used to help local Kootenay/ B.C. patients that require help with their cancer needs.

Call Redstone to book a tee time at 362-9141. To register a team, individual, or donate go to www.convio.cancer.ca/site/TR/GolfForetheCure/GOLF_CAN_even_?pg=entry&fr_id=17587.
