Golf tournament raised $4k for local groups
On September 19, Kimberley RCMP and Speedwatch held their annual charity golf tournament and raised over $4,000, which will go to local community groups.
The event held at the Kimberley Golf Course was a great success with almost 50 golfers participating. Funds generated by the tournament were distributed to local community groups including: MADD, Rotary Club (Splash Park), Kimberley Nordic Club, Crimestoppers, Seahorse Swim Club and Kimberley Minor Soccer.
Throughout the season our Speedwatch volunteers monitor traffic speed to raise awareness on our streets, but they also take on coordinating the tournament.
“We specifically would like to recognize Sharon Gendell and Ernie Miller who took the lead in organizing the event. They were instrumental in making it a success,” said Cpl. Chris Newel.
