Golf tournament raises $20,000 for local hospitals

Funds go to CT scanners for Abbotsford and Chilliwack

The recent Golfing “Fore” Your Local Hospital Tournament raised more than $20,000 for hospitals in the eastern Fraser Valley.

The sold-out event, on June 22 at the Chilliwack Golf Club (CGC), was held in support of the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).

Proceeds are designated towards the purchase of new CT scanners for Abbotsford and Chilliwack.

“Thank you to all of our golfers, sponsors, volunteers and donors who helped make this year’s event not only a great success but also a great deal of fun,” said Liz Harris, FVHCF executive director.

Hole sponsors provided entertainment and snacks on the course. At the banquet after the tournament, guests enjoyed entertainment provided by local comedian Cliff Prang.

The FVHCF raises funds for hospitals and health care services within the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District.

This includes hospitals and residential care facilities in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, and Mission as well as Home Health, Mental Health and Public Health in those communities.

Donated funds go towards the purchase of priority equipment, medical staff education, and patient comforts. The date for next year’s event is June 21 at CGC
