Golf tournament to raise money for EKFH

Boston Pizza Cranbrook and Northstar Motors are teaming up to fundraise for the East Kootenay Foundation for Health.

There will be 18 chances to shoot a hole in one at a charity tournament in August, as the Cranbrook Golf Club transforms into a Par-3 course in a fundraiser for the East Kootenay Foundation for Health.

Mens’ and ladies’ tee boxes on every hole will be moved up closer to the flag as each hole turns into a Par-3 hole at the second annual Boston Pizza Cranbrook/Northstar Motors Ltd charity tournament, which is set for Friday, August 23.

Each hole will feature a different vehicle courtesy of Northstar Motors, which can be won with a hole-in-one, while there will be other prizes for shots that are closest to the pin.

Trevor Gordon, the owner of Boston Pizza Cranbrook and Pat Spring, the general sales manager of Northstar Motors, are heading up the event.

“We are excited to host this unique charity golf tournament, enabling our two companies to work together to raise important monies for a local charity that the entire region benefits from,” said Gordon and Spring, in a joint press release statement.

“We are both passionate about the game of golf, so why not take the game we love and turn it into not only a fun day for golfers but a profitable one for charity?”

Along with the chance to win vehicles, there will be on-course entertainment, putting contests, beat the pro action, silent auction and a dinner at the end of the day.

The EKFH will receive proceeds raised from the event, and provide volunteers to man each and every hole to act as witnesses in the event that someone sinks their tee shot and wins a new vehicle.
