Golf for the Cure

The third annual Golf for the Cure tournament was held at Redstone Resort last Thursday.

The third annual Golf for the Cure tournament was held last Thursday at Redstone Resort. Fifty-one golfers turned out to play in a scramble style tournament and raise money to help those in the Kootenays affected by cancer.

Golfers played wearing pink outfits of varying shades, and even some of the golf carts were decked out in pink bows and ribbons.

“We spend time getting a lot of prizes, and it’s a really fun event,” said Deb deTremauden, one of the event’s organizers.

The tournament raised over $2900 for donation to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Darby Profili, Nathan Neufeld, and Richie Samuelson took first place; Chris D’Ororico, Kelly Acheson, Mike Heximer, and Wolfgang Koban came in second; and Colin Rintoul, Kelly Rintoul, John Noakes, and Sharon Noakes placed third.

 

Golfing was followed by dinner at the clubhouse and the awarding of prizes.
