Sun, great golf, food and prizes, made the Rotary golf tournament at the weekend a huge success.

The event on Saturday at Fernie Golf and Country Club raised around $9,000 through ticket sales, a silent auction and sponsorships.

Half of the money will go towards the ‘A Clear View’ campaign, a two year, $1 million fund raising venture to purchase a digital mammography unit for the East Kootenay Regional hospital.

The other half of the money goes to Shelterbox Canada, a Rotary disaster relief program that provides families in disaster areas with a 10-person tent, a stove and other essential gear to help them through the emergency situation.

The event saw 96 golfers enjoying a day on the fairways, and 127 in total had dinner.
