Gord Leffler addressed Fernie City Council regarding a request for sponsorship for the STARS in the Valley Golf Tournament.

Council donated $1000 and has three councillors taking part in the event.

The tournament, to be held at The Fernie Golf and Country Club, is in support of STARS air ambulance that has carried out over 21,954 missions since 1985 within the region and is a vital service within the Valley. The service provides care for critically ill or injured patients.

“This year we have an excellent committee that was able to pull this event together,” said Aysha Haines,” Fernie Golf and Country Club Marketing Committee Co-chair. “There are currently 30 different members working on it with STARS, making it a great two day event for everyone in town.”

On Sunday June 17, which is Father’s Day, there will be a community Family Fun Day. The day will consist of golfing competitions, a driving competition, a putting competition as well as children’s activities. There will also be a silent auction. Activities begin at noon and there is no registration required for Sunday’s events.

The 18 Hole Scramble Tournament will take place on Monday, June 18. Participants should register prior to Friday, June 8 to guarantee a spot. Registration is $190 per golfer or $760 for a team of four.
