The Golf for the Cure golf tournament takes place today at Redstone Resort. It will be a fun and social event to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

It is the second annual event held at Redstone Resort and it is the only one of its kind in the west Kootenays. A Golf for the Cure event was held in Creston earlier in June with a great turnout.

”This is a great tournament, mostly with local participants and we have great prizes,” Deb De Tremaudan explains. She wants to encourage new people, people who haven’t even golfed before to come and participate in the event. Everyone can golf for the cure.

It is a nine-hole tournament and De Tremaudan says, “We want everyone to come down to the resort and have a good time.”

The preparations for the event are finished and Redstone Resort is more than ready to host a successful fundraising event.

Participants can register at the event beginning at 3:30 p.m. and the last start time is 5:30 p.m. Bring your own group or join an existing one.

If you are unable to attend the tournament, you can donate to the cause by going to the the Golf for the Cure website: www.rcgagolfforethecure.com.

For more details, contact Deb De Tremaudan at 250 352-1460 or 250 368 7329.
