Big Lakes County raised just over $22,000 at the 6th Annual Invitational Charity Golf Tournament, held on August 22, 2019, at the High Prairie & District Golf Club.
Of those funds, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Heart & Stroke Foundation both received $5,000. The Swan Hills Hospital Foundation received $4,165.20, and the High Prairie Health Foundation received $8,045.40.
“For the past six years, funds raised from this tournament have gone to Foundations that have helped support the needs of our residents,” states Reeve Simard. “It is truly so heartwarming to see our community come together and raise money that will help enhance services. On behalf of Big Lakes County, we want to thank our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, and generous contributors, because, without them, this event would not be a success.”
