KNC annual charity golf tournament to be held June 16
The Ktunaxa Nation Council (KNC) announced today that its annual charity golf tournament will take place this year on Thursday, June 16 at the St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. Due to the pandemic, the tournament was last held in 2019.
“Everything is lining up for this year’s tournament to be a great one,” said Cindy Soukoroff, Head Golf Professional at St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. “The course will be in great shape and this event is always a fantastic time for the players. Of course, any COVID regulations in place in June at the time of the tournament will be adhered to for the health and safety of participants.”
The Ktunaxa Nation Charity Golf Tournament is held annually in June on the Thursday before National Indigenous Peoples Day. Participants enjoy 18 holes of golf at the world class St. Eugene golf course, a gourmet buffet dinner and a silent auction featuring items donated by businesses and people from across ʔamakʔis Ktunaxa.
All proceeds from the tournament support the Ktunaxa Nation Council’s Traditional Knowledge and Language Sector.
“I am looking forward to this year’s event,” said Ktunaxa Nation Council Chair Kathryn Teneese. “Our annual golf tournament is always a highly-anticipated event in the region. The Ktunaxa Nation Council is grateful to all those who participate as the funds raised go directly to supporting our efforts to revitalize Ktunaxa language and culture.”
