Ladies Day Fundaiser Summary!
The Kimberley Golf Club’s Tuesday Ladies’ league hosted their annual fundraiser on Tuesday, July 9th. Wishing to support a cause within the community, the ladies chose to raise money for the “Take a Seat Campaign” for Centre 64. Thirty-one ladies came out for a fun day of golf followed by a great lunch. Though the focus was not on golf scores or prizes, there were a few “skill prizes” given out. Judy Caron won a prize for placing her tee shot within a circle on the first fairway, Margaret Sutter won the longest putt on the third hole, Susan Wilson won the “closest to the squiggly line” on the fourth hole, Peggy Sorkilmo won for placing her putt within a 2 foot circle in the “Putting Challenge” and Laura Burn won for sinking her putt in the same challenge. A team prize was awarded to the team that fully embraced the theme of the tournament by coming out to play in costumes from the film, “The Pirates of Penzance”. And thank you to Margaret for generously donating 2 pairs of hand knit socks as draw prizes.
The goal was to raise $500 to purchase 2 Centre 64 seats. Through the” Putting Challenge”, “Hire a Pro” and individual donations made at lunch time, the thirty-one participants donated a total of $795, or 3+ seats! A big thank you to Simon Jones, director of golf and the pro in “Hire a Pro”, for his support, to the maintenance team for the great conditions of the golf course and to the staff of the Raven’s Roost for a great lunch. Most importantly, thank you to the ladies who participated in the tournament for their generosity.
