The 3rd Annual Boston Pizza/Northstar GM Par 3 Charity Golf Tournament took place on August 22, 2014 and with the overwhelming support from sponsors, donors and the participants, we are very pleased to announce that $29,000 will be donated to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health for the purchase of Vital Signs Monitors.

Trevor Gordon, of Boston Pizza and Pat Spring of Northstar GM first brought the Charity Golf Tournament to the community three years ago, turning the Cranbrook Golf Club in to a Par 3 course for one day, giving every participant a chance to shoot for a hole in one on each hole to win a new vehicle. It is the only tournament of its kind in the Cranbrook area. Participants are treated to a fun-filled day and evening, combined with amazing auction items such as tickets to Vancouver Canucks games, Katy Perry concert tickets and other fantastic prizes.

The past three years has resulted in raising more than $65,000 for the East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH).

Trevor Gordon and Pat Spring said, “Every year, this tournament gets better and every year we are able to raise more money for health-care right here in our community. It’s important for us, our businesses and our staff to raise money for a cause that impacts everyone right here where we live and do business.”

The Par 3 Charity Golf Tournament Committee would like to thank everyone for their support and involvement in this event.

“This tournament has raised funds for much-needed equipment in our hospital for the past three years,” said Donna Grainger, Executive Director of the EKFH. “Everyone in our community comes together to support these types of events, whether it be our valued volunteers, the organizers and the important participants. This type of team approach makes the health-care in this community stronger.”

The Par 3 Charity Golf Tournament will take place again in August 2015.
