After the Invermere Companion Animal Network (ICAN) walked away with over $13,000 last year, the 4th annual Invermere Valley Echo Giving Back Golf Tournament is back with a new beneficiary to again make a difference in our community.
The Rotary Club of Invermere has been selected as the recipient of this year’s fundraiser. Other past recipients include the Invermere Fire Department and the Invermere chapter of the Special Olympics. The money for Rotary this year will help fund the waterpark project at Kinsmen Beach, and while Valley Echo publisher Marilyn Berry says she had many deserving applicants, in the end she had to pick just one.
“Four years ago, it was felt that The Valley Echo and Black Press were looking for a way to give back to the community,” Berry said. “This is such a giving community, and there’s always need for another fundraiser.”
The tournament returns to the Windermere Valley Golf Course this year, which Berry would like to thank as a steadfast supporter of the tournament since day one.
The tournament is set to take place on Sunday June 24. Enter at The Valley Echo office located at 503 13th St. in Invermere.
