The Battlefords United Way held their annual Charity Golf Tournament on July 9 at Jackfish Lodge.
There were 93 golfers enjoying the sunshine, raising a great deal $30,000 and contributing to a number of worthy causes.
Golfers enjoyed a putting contest, and a marshmallow driving event with the RBC. There was a steak dinner and many prizes to be won. Bruin Colby Cave joined the event and provided some autographed swag as a prize. There was also a Braden Holtby jersey up for grabs.
Many businesses and individuals who provided valuable sponsorship for the event
All of the contributions will help the Battlefords United Way to continue their mission to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action. The United Way’s three main focus areas are: “from poverty to possibility,” “strong communities/healthy people” and “all that kids can be.”
The United Way is now working towards an October campaign month and recruiting new board members.
