On Fri., Aug. 30, the sun was shining at Kingswood Golf Course for the La Salle Annual Charity Golf Tournament.


The beautiful setting and the hot humid weather made for one awesome day.  The tournament was sold out with 38 teams, totalling 152 people. This was my first year golfing in the tournament and I was immediately impressed by the huge number of people eager to spend the day on the course.

 
The organizing committee consisted of Christie Houston-Klatt, Jenn Penner, Miles Mortensen, Jamie Campbell, Paul Schultz, Dean Bjarnarson, Janice Brown and Jodi Johnson. It was clear from the beginning that they knew what they were doing, easily getting the 152 people registered and ready to play. Tickets were sold for a silent auction and 50/50 draws and food and drinks were served at registration.


Dufresne and Ventura were gold sponsors of the event with over 40 other sponsors involved. Hole and tee sponsors provided everything from food and drinks to other gifts such as golf balls, hats, and more.  Some sponsors also held fun games and contests for the participants.  
The long, hot day in the sun was so much fun, but it didn’t end with golf.

 
The golf day was followed up by a fabulous dinner in the clubhouse. Gary Romijn was the emcee for the evening, thanking all those who contributed to making the day such a success, and announcing draw and contest winners.


Christie Houston-Klatt has been involved in organizing the event for two years and said Kingswood was very accommodating. Everyone I spoke to reported having a great time and most plan to participate again next year. The organizing committee had a debriefing to discuss what worked well, what didn’t, and to start working on next year’s event. Dean Bjarnason and Chris Randall who represent the La Salle Charitable Foundation handled the finances and will report on the outcome in an upcoming community newsletter.


Proceeds raised will be split between La Salle Community Centre, helping to keep programming costs down, and La Salle KIDZ daycare initiative, which is working towards building a not for profit child care centre in the community.


If you would like to donate and make a difference in your community while having lots of fun at the same time, consider registering for this great event next year.  It is always held on Friday of the September long weekend – so save the date!
