A ‘hole-in-one’ for the right cause

Settler Health Services Foundation hosts charity golf tournament

By Jessica Jones For the Independent

The Stettler Health Services Foundation will be hosting its annual fun golf tournament on June 22nd, with all funds going to the ongoing Stettler emergency department renovations.

“It’s a charity golf tournament for the Foundation,” said Stettler Golf and County Club General Manager Mark Fuger.

“It’s all skill levels, so come as you are,” he added, encouraging people to register for the tournament.

The charity golf tournament will be an 18-hole, best ball format played in teams of four. There will be a supper, hole prizes, as well as prizes for the best Hawaiian costume.

Fuger is asking that people register themselves or their teams before June 15th at one of the following locations: The Stettler Golf and Country Club, the Stettler Hospital Administrative Office, Bond-o Communications, or online at stettlerhealthfoundation.ca/golf.

“It’s important,” he said, hoping that up to 70 golfers play in the tournament.

Registration for golfers is $80 but they will be provided with a $25 tax receipt.

Single registrants are also welcome and will be matched up with a team. Individuals who would prefer not to golf also have the option to register for the roast beef supper.

The tournament is important, says Stettler Health Services Foundation (SHSF) Chairperson Leona Thorogood, because they are embarking on the second phase of the capital plan and are raising funds for equipment for the emergency trauma rooms.

The SHSF is attempting to raise funds in excess of $400,000 for the equipment.

“We desperately need this in our community, and the more we can do, the happier we will be,” she said. “It will be a fun day raising money for our community hospital.”

Contact Leona Thorogood at 403-740-9121 for more information, to contribute, or to support the SHSF.
