Golfing for the Cure

Ladies raised over $8000 at the tenth annual Golf for the Cure

Ladies came together for the tenth annual Golf for the Cure fundraiser for breast cancer research. Pink was the theme as well as laughter as 71 women on 18 teams golfed nine holes at the Fernie Golf Club on the evening of Tuesday, July 23.

Julie Dube, Michelle Salvador, Lindsey Aikman and Shannon Whalen were the team fundraising challenge winners raising over $2000 and also had the lowest team score. Dube herself raised $1,300.

Golfers enjoyed a wonderful meal, prizes were awarded and a silent auction quietly contributed more funds.

There was fierce competition for the pink centerpieces that decorated the tables. Centerpieces were passed from hand to hand to the shortest, tallest and most jeweled woman at each table.

Aysha Haines organizer of this year’s event extended a huge thanks to Beth Field for her assistance organizing the event as Haines loaned support to her stepmother who is battling breast cancer.
