BPNS Charity Golf nets $15,225 for MRI campaign
The fifth annual Boston Pizza North Star GM Charity Golf Tournament was held on August 19. It was another amazing year for the tournament, raising over $15,000 to support the MRI: An Image of Health campaign to bring a permanent MRI to the East Kootenay.
Generous sponsors who supported each and every hole, a full field of golfers, generous auction donations and the dedicated volunteer hole spotters are what made the 18 par threes a rousing success yet again.
Trevor Gordon of Boston Pizza and Pat Spring of North Star GM jointly stated: “We have had a great time over the past five years hosting this event. It is wonderful to see the impact our community can have when we come together for a day of golf for an amazing cause. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to bring the much needed permanent MRI to our region.”
Over the past five years the BPNS Tournament has raised over $90,000 to improve healthcare in the East Kootenay. This amazing contribution to healthcare could not have been possible without the outstanding commitment and dedication of signature sponsors, Boston Pizza and North Star GM.
“It is truly inspiring to see what the organizing committee for the BPNS Golf Tournament has been able to accomplish over the past five years. Through their hard work to support healthcare we are almost at the point of offering truly regional healthcare in the East Kootenay and with this contribution to the MRI: An Image of Health Campaign we are one large step closer to that goal,” said Cassandra Schwarz, East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH) Executive Director.
