Scrambling for hospice

The Alberni Golf Club’s Tuesday Business Ladies are holding their year-end wind-up scramble on Sunday, Sept. 27.

The Alberni Golf Club’s Tuesday Business Ladies are holding their year-end wind-up scramble on Sunday, Sept. 27.

Again this year, they are also doing a fundraiser for the Alberni Hospice Society. Last year, as well as having fun golfing and eating a great dinner, with Scotiabank on board matching funds, they raised $12,810.25.

The business ladies have raised a whopping $53,487.73 in just six years.

The scramble takes place at the Alberni Golf Club on Sunday, Sept. 27. The nine-hole scramble of fun golf starts at 2 p.m., followed by dinner.

Before that, at 1 p.m., there will be a K.P. (closest to the pin) shoot-out for all the K.P. winters during the season.  Before all this starts, all the ladies get tickets to try and decide which of the generous donations from merchants, businesses and individuals they wish to win.

Best of all, Alberni Hospice Society & Ty Watson House will once again benefit from players’ generosity.

Organizers invite any woman to participate and have a great time.  The theme this year for the scramble is “Bedrock, the Flintstones”.

It’s fun to get into costume with the theme, but please keep course dress code etiquette in mind.  Just stop by or call the Pro Shop (723-5422) to sign up on your own or register a whole team (4 women per team).  Call the Pro Shop for more details.
