Phantom golf fundraiser set to roll

Celebrating Health Care Golf tourny is the only event where you can be a “no-show” and still make a difference

The golf course isn’t booked and the players don’t show, but the money raised by the Phantom Celebrating Health Care Golf tournament, brought to you by Kootenay Savings and the East Kootenay Foundation for Health, is the only event in town where you can be a “no-show” and still make a difference.

The charitable event, billed as a “phantom” event supposedly scheduled for mid-September is a unique way to carry on the tradition of the now-defunct annual Celebrating Health Care Golf Tournament.

It’s a simple and easy way for donors to show their support for the Invermere and District Hospital.  And, because there is no actual event, each and every dollar raised will go directly to the cause.

So, forget marking your calendar; there’s no tournament to play, no hole to sponsor or prize donation to give away.

Don’t round up your foursome or buy new tees and balls, because this tournament’s not happening, no way, not at all.

Donations can be made online at, mailed to EKFH at 13 – 24th Ave N, Cranbrook, BC V1C 3H9 or at any branch of Kootenay Savings. All donors will receive a charitable receipt. For more info, contact Donna Grainger, Executive Director at EKFH, at 1-877-489-6481.
