Celebrate health with 18 holes

Charity tournament supports Invermere hospital

Copper Point Golf Course

INVERMERE — The Celebrating Health Care Golf Tournament is back this summer!

The East Kootenay Foundation for Health and the Windermere Health Care Auxiliary, along with title sponsor Kootenay Savings, are proud to once again host an event that promises a wonderful day of golf, fun and friendship, while also helping raise funds towards the purchase of a new fetal monitor for the Invermere District Hospital pediatrics unit.

In the first three years of the event, thanks in large part to the overwhelming support from our generous sponsors and golfers, we raised over $67,000 towards the redevelopment of the Invermere District Hospital Emergency Department.

Now we’re excited to direct all our energy and focus in 2011 on bringing a state of the art fetal monitor to the Columbia Valley.

Along with 18 holes of golf, the day also includes hole-in-one, closest to the pin and door prizes, a silent auction and a fantastic meal from The View restaurant at Copper Point.

Most important of all, it’s an opportunity to make a significant contribution to children’s health care in the East Kootenay.

We invite you to join us in our fundraising efforts, either as a valued past or inspired new golfer.

The tournament runs Saturday, August 20 at the Ridge course at Copper Point.

The tournament’s four-person team “shamble” format is perfect for golfers of all abilities, from novice to experienced players.

To register, as a foursome or an individual, please contact the Invermere branch of Kootenay Savings at 250-342-6961 or the Radium branch at 250-347-2290, or the East Kootenay Foundation for Health toll-free at 1-877-489-6481. You can also email  donna.grainger@interiorhealth.ca.
