Golf season is just around the corner and the Fernie Rotary Club is in preparation for this year’s Charity Tournament. Scheduled this year on May 12th it is the first event of Fernie’s golf season and a great way to begin the year.
As you are aware, the intent of this tournament is three- fold; to raise funds to support local programs and services to the Elk Valley, to be a fun event for participants from near and far, and to showcase the hospitality and generosity of Fernie’s people and businesses. Golfers enjoy 18 holes of golf, followed by a silent auction, live auction, dinner and dance.
The recipients of this year’s funds will be the East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s “A Clear View” Campaign and Shelter Box Canada. The EKFH’s “A Clear View Campaign” is raising money to purchase a digital stereotactic mammography unit for Cranbrook’s Hospital. This unit will enhance the detection and care of breast cancer patients throughout the East Kootenays and the Elk Valley. ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide
The success of our tournament is a result of the generous support of local businesses and individuals such as yourselves. We are once again soliciting your support as we look forward to hosting the eleventh edition of our tournament. In addition to the many benefits of sponsorship the club will recognize your generosity at the event, encouraging golfers and others to patronize your business. A list of contributors will be published in the newspaper and your business name will appear on the place mat used at dinner.
We have the following great options for support:
Hole Sponsor with 1 golfer – $300
Hole Sponsor with 4 golfers – $575
Mens and Ladies Closest to the Pin – $200 each
Mens and Ladies Closest to the Line – $200 each
