Fore! Right this way for Castlegar Hospice Society benefit

Society, Mountain FM and Castlegar Golf Club team up for fifth annual charity tournament

 

 

It’s time to dust off those golf clubs for a good cause. The Fifth Annual Mountain FM Classic Rock and Charity Golf Tournament with Castlegar Hospice is set for this Sunday, June 23 at Castlegar Golf Club.

Castlegar Hospice Society’s [CHS] executive director, Suzanne Lehbauer, said even if you don’t play, the tourney is guaranteed to appeal to everyone.

“If you’re not a golfer you can come out just for the dinner. It’s lots of fun and you can help us by buying many of the items we have for sale or for auction. Or, you can just make a donation. Everything helps.”

Lehbauer said the community has been extremely generous and has donated many great items for the auction.

“We have wine gift baskets, men’s hair products and cuts from Glen Carew, owner and barber of His Place Hairstyling. We also have a lot of golf items for the golfer and much, much more. There are some really wonderful items up for auction,” she added.

This year will be bigger and better than ever, promised Lehbauer.

Besides the silent auction, the tourney comes complete with 18 holes of golf, followed by a specially prepared meal, and will also feature a chance to purchase a once in a lifetime experience or any of the fantastic celebrity signed memorabilia available.

Up for grabs are such items as sheet music signed by the one and only Frank Sinatra, a Paul McCartney autographed guitar or a Pink Floyd autographed record album, to name a few.

The once in a lifetime adventures for sale includes, in part, a New Orleans jazz experience, a safari driving tour and sommelier wine and cheese experience with a three night stay and airfare for two, and a US Open 2014 premium trophy club package that you can buy online right now. In fact, all of the celebrity signed memorabilia and once in a lifetime goodies can be purchased online prior to the tournament.

More than anything, Lehbauer is hoping that this is the year to some lucky golfer gets a hole in one and wins $10,000 courtesy of Hall Printing.

Last year the tournament raised $4,000.

“It was a little low, but we had all that flooding and didn’t know until the last moment if we could even play,” Lehbauer. Organizers, added Lehbaurer, are optimistic about this year’s tournament.

“We’re hoping to raise between $8,000 and $10,000.”

The tournament is also co-sponsored by Castlegar Golf Club.

“We really thank them for that,” Lehbauer said.

Registration begins at 11 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The dinner, awards and a silent auction begins at 6 p.m.

All funds raised will go towards the many programs and services offered by CHS. There’s no charge for services provided by CHS which is currently working towards launching a full service hospice facility which will provide services to our region.
