Passports for the 8th annual KMSC Law Golf Event are now available to the public after launching this year’s initiative Monday at the Grande Prairie Golf and Country Club, the host site for this year’s festivities.
The event supports 18 local non-profit groups and organizers are hoping to raise around $70,000 this year.
“For $285, people get $800 worth of value. Part of that $800 of value are 20 $10 certificates that can be redeemed for the Summer Spirit Social, but also be given to the not-for-profits on golf day,” explained Lyle Carlstrom, Chairperson.
Professional Canadian golfer and instructor Danny King will be their celebrity golfer this year.
“We start with putting and we work on pitching and driving, to encourage everybody and make sure nobody feels excluded,” Carlstrom said. “Our tournament format is best ball, so you don’t have to be an expert golfer. You just have to care about the community and you’ll find you’re welcome here.”
The three-day event sees a number of activities taking place. They have room for 144 participants, but Carlstrom says they are flexible on that number.
Carlstrom adds they’re on the hunt for sponsors.
“We really are reaching out to businesses to sponsor us, because our whole economy has taken a hit and sponsorships are a little tougher than they have been before.”
Tickets for the July 23-25 event can be purchased at the Grande Prairie Golf and Country Club or through any of the 18 non-profit groups involved.
