Golf fundraiser nets cash for Alberni hospice

The Alberni Golf Club Business Ladies raised more than $7,000 for Ty Watwson house.

On Sunday, Sept. 25, the Alberni Golf Club Business Ladies held their year-end golf scramble.

Again this year we partnered up with Scotiabank to raise funds for the Ty Watson House. We are very proud to be presenting Ty Watson House with a cheque for $7,632.

Despite the questionable weather 42 ladies committed to golfing and were rewarded with a beautiful afternoon.

Everyone here, and others that stopped by, supported Ty Watson House by purchasing raffle tickets on the many wonderful items donated by over 60 very generous local sponsors.

All monies raised have been matched by Scotiabank and will be presented to Ty Watson House to help this much needed hospice.

The Business Ladies year-end winners were as follows:  Low Gross: Suzanne Jones; Low Net: Sherry Savard; second, Low Gross: Janice Boyko; second, Low Net: Darlus Jonsson; third, Low Gross: Mary Larson; third, Low Net: Robin Petersen.

Most Chip-ins: Julie Swaney; Most Birdies: Marg Toms; Most Pars: Lisa Young.

The Dennis Jonsson Scramble winners on Sunday were the team of Carol Jaworski, Kath Stolth, Sherry Stolth and Linda Smith. The team of Anne Brookes, Claudia Romaniuk, Marg Toms and Kathy MacDonald came second.

Business Ladies’ golf at Alberni Golf Club will be starting up again next April.
