Boston Pizza/Northstar Motors annual Charity Golf tournament

 

With a brand new car for a hole-in-one prize on every hole this is one tournament you will not want to miss!  Boston Pizza Cranbrook and Northstar Motors Ltd. have joined forces for the 3rd Annual Par 3 Charity Golf tournament on Friday, August 22 at the beautiful Cranbrook Golf Course.

This year the tournament will raise funds in support of the East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH).  “We strongly believe in their mission to provide funding for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and other community facilities and complementing the health care needs of our region.”  said organizers, Trevor Gordon, owner of Boston Pizza Cranbrook and Pat Spring, General Sales Manager of Northstar Motors.  “This tournament is such a great way for us to combine our passion for the game of golf and raising money for a charity that contributes so much to our community”

Every hole on the 18-hole Cranbrook Golf Course will be transformed into a Par 3 with the hopes that some lucky golfer will get a hole-in-one and win the brand new car courtesy of Northstar Motors Ltd.  If we don’t see a hole-in-one there is still a closest to the pin prize on every hole.

Teams of four players will play a Texas Scramble format as they vie for one of the top 3 team prizes while being entertained on course by DJ Dougie, taking part in the Beat the Pro contest and the Bridge Interiors Putting contest.

Donna Grainger, EKFH Executive Director shares, “The first two tournaments made a huge difference to the quality of health care at the regional hospital.  Thanks to those who support this fundraiser and it’s amazing sponsors, Boston Pizza and Northstar Motors, the intensive care unit and diagnostic imaging (mammography) received significant funding from results of the tournaments.”

This year’s event will focus on funding vital signs monitors for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.  These monitors measure and display heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure.

Registration forms for the tournament are available at Boston Pizza.  For any additional information or to sponsor, volunteer or register you can contact Trevor at:  gordont@bostonpizza.com or visit our website at:  www.cranbrookcharitygolf.ca
