Campbell River Hospital Foundation golf tournament another great success

Rainy conditions can’t dampen the spirits of Campbell River golfers when supporting a great cause

Despite the weather turning from what we’ve gotten used to over the summer to what seemed more like late fall just in time for the event, the Campbell River Hospital Foundation’s annual Golf. Because You Care. fundraising tournament, held on Saturday at Storey Creek Golf Club, was another great success, according to organizers.

The grey skies and sporadic rain throughout the day certainly wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of the 33 teams of golfers who made their way around the course this weekend in support of the foundation’s efforts to equip the Campbell River Hospital.

“We were a bit concerned about the weather this morning,” says foundation event and communications director Carly Pisterzi, “but it turned out to be another great day.”

Executive director Stacey Marsh says this year’s tournament will supply the hospital – and all families who welcome a new member in the maternity ward – with a baby bed.

“Each new baby born at the Campbell River Hospital will receive a safe bed for the baby to sleep in and the parents receive a whole bunch of different gifts like onesies and lanolin cream,” Marsh says, adding that they expect, based on the turnout that the tournament will have again raised between $40,000 and $45,000 toward that cause this year.
