Castlegar drives home hospice support

Beautiful day, choice setting for productive hospice fundraiser

Laden with booty

Sunday, June 23 was the occasion of the fifth annual charity golf tournament for the benefit of the Castlegar Hospice Society and, according to the one who would know best, it was the best ever result.

Suzanne Lehbauer, the driving force behind the compassionate society gave a brief report as the crowd was getting set to tuck in to a massive buffet. Totals were not available at that time as the auction of memorabilia (including a Rolling Stones autographed Fender guitar) had yet to be completed.

“We had 14 teams come out, 13 gold sponsors and numerous donations from local businesses,” said Lehbauer, “more this year than ever, which is fabulous! People supporting Hospice… it’s wonderful.”

The winning team is identified in the photo caption above. Second and third-place foursomes are listed below:

 

Second

Gordon Brown

Dustin Kinsep

Al Mathews

Jamie Jablonski

 

Third

Devon Cheveldaeff

Cory Clifford

Reg Clarkson

Kevin Nesbitt
