Win a new vehicle and give back to your communityPosted: August 8, 2012

A unique golf tournament is set to hit the links in late August with all proceeds being directed to local charity in the East Kootenay.

The first Boston Pizza / Northstar GM Par 3 golf tournament is taking place on Friday, August 24 at 1:30 p.m. at the Cranbrook Golf Course (pictured above). Each hole will be reformatted to a 150-200 yard distance and offers golfers a chance to win a brand new vehicle on each hole, courtesy of Northstar GM, should they get a hole-in-one.

“I’ve combined my passion for golf and giving back to the community in coming up with this unique golf tournament concept,” said Trevor Gordon, Owner of Boston Pizza Cranbrook. “Partnering with Northstar GM is a natural fit considering the commitment both our companies have to doing business in Cranbrook and supporting the local area through community giving.”

In addition to each hole featuring a hole-in-one prize, there will be putting contests, chipping contests, and on-course entertainment. Following the round of golf, dinner will be provided by the Cranbrook Golf Course in the clubhouse where a silent auction will take place.

“We at Northstar GM support many community initiatives. The opportunity to support the purchase of a digital mammography unit for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital was without question, as it benefits the entire East Kootenay,” said Pat Spring, Owner of Northstar GM. “Together with Trevor Gordon of Boston Pizza, we both realize the importance of this campaign and welcome the opportunity to support the East Kootenay Foundation for Health in its effort to raise $1 million dollars for the purchase of the digital mammography unit.”

All money raised from the tournament will go to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH) to support A Clear View campaign to purchase a digital mammography unit for the East Kootenay Regional hospital.

Donna Grainger, Executive Director of the EKFH said, “Our goal is to raise $1 million to purchase a new digital stereotactic mammography unit for the hospital. This campaign is really about each and every one of us, our families, our friends, each deserving the best care possible.”
