Organizers Janice Cross and Kathy White saw to it that the event ran smoothly and the golfers were awarded prizes for their efforts—many prizes donated by merchants in the Alberni Valley.
A list of prize sponsors was circulated and you can bet that those merchants will get the support of the participating golfers.
The West Coast Open tournament was a huge success due to the generosity and organizational abilities of untiring volunteers and donors.
