Lake Windermere District Lions’ Charity Golf Day donates $13,050Posted: August 14, 2012
During a recent visit to the Lions Clubs International website, East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Donna Grainger found words that most appropriately described the latest A Clear View donation of $13,050 by the Lake Windermere District Lions Club. “Lions Club – Ready to Help, Worldwide. Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because Lions help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.”
This group of dedicated men and women of the Lions are known to support many worthwhile projects throughout the year but it’s their Charity Golf Day when the Lake Windermere District Lions really shine.
The annual event , held July 17 at the Copper Point Golf Course, saw members of the Lions and over 30 volunteers greeting players, taking team photos, watching for hole in ones and being ambassadors for this year’s chosen cause; the A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign.
Lions’ President, Harold Hazelaar shares, “This piece of equipment is of critical importance to many individuals living here in the Columbia Valley and throughout the East Kootenay. Our Club and its members are thrilled to support a campaign that will impact the lives of those facing a breast cancer diagnosis.”
Volunteers supporting the Lions’ effort came from the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary (the first and largest leadership gift of $250,000 for the campaign), the Invermere Health Care Auxiliary ($50,000 leadership gift), the Edgewater/Radium Health Care Auxiliary ($500 support gift) and the Windermere Health Care Auxiliary (gift pending their August 25 charity golf tournament) and East Kootenay Foundation for Health.
In return for the help, the Lake Windermere District Lions Club not only blessed EKFH and the East Kootenay Regional Hospital’s mammography campaign with a $13,050 donation, it recognized the efforts of the Invermere & Windermere Health Care Auxiliaries for their work at the Invermere Hospital by presenting them each with a $500 donation.
The A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign is benefiting from so many groups and individuals working together for a common goal of bringing the best in breast cancer care to the East Kootenay. This gift from the Lake Windermere District Lions brings the current campaign pledges and donations total to just over $850,000.
