Fore the Kids
3rd Annual Ann Davis charity golf tourney June 12
acquie Grant was on 98.3 Star Fm last week talking with morning radio show personalities, Scott and Lisa about the 3rd Anne Davis Transition Golf Tournament coming up June 12.
"We have two hole-in-one prizes; RBC $10,000, so if someone gets a hole-in-one, they'll get that and the other hole-in-one is from the Investor's Group which is a trip for two to the US Open," she said.
Grant said they have incredible support from business who have donated additional prizes and says now all the need are the people.
"It's $65, you get lunch and they make that at a great restaurant there."
Even though it's a transition house for battered and abused women, most of the money they raise goes towards the kid's programs.
"Money is all going to our children's programs. We served over 1500 families and children in crisis last year so most of our funding comes from fundraising so we really need everybody's help," she said.
"We had 80 participants last year so we've gone up the last couple of years. We're aiming for 100 so I'm really hoping this year."
Grant said that 98.3 Star Fm are one of the major sponsors and that they also have Mertin's on-board.
"They're sponsoring our registration table, which is fabulous, and Chilliwack Times, Westjet, and like I said, RBC and Investor's Group."
"It's all about fun," Grant said in closing out the interview.
The tourney is 9 am - 1 pm, Sunday June 12 at Aquadel Golf Course, Cultus Lake. Participants can register at the golf course with Mastercard or cash or pay by cheque.
