Winners of the first annual Thompson Valley Funeral Home Charity Golf Tournament Willie Ghostkeeper

Charity tournament raises $2,084 for cancer research

Thompson Valley Funeral Home's first annual Charity Golf Tournament, July 31, at the Semlin Valley Golf Course

Thompson Valley Funeral Home’s first annual Charity Golf Tournament, held  Sunday, July 31, turned out to be a beautiful day with lots of fun and laughs.

Fifty-four golfers showed up to show their support and help us raise funds for the BC/Yukon Breast Cancer Foundation. Altogether, we raised $2,084 to go towards the fight against Breast Cancer.

The big winners of the tournament with the lowest gross was the team of Stearn Fredrickson, Gilles Lachapelle, Willie Ghostkeeper, and Bev Campbell.

Ladies Longest Putt was Gail Holopuk and Men’s Longest Putt was Paul Whitehead. Ladies Longest Drive was Cathy MacArthur and Men’s Longest Drive was Shawn Nicholas.

It took many people to help make this day such a success we could not have done it without all your help and support. We would like to thank Keith and Judy Stuart and Leanne Stourmey who prepared a wonderful dinner after the tournament. And thank you to the many local and Kamloops’ businesses, as well as  friends and families, who supported the tournament through sponsorships and prize donations.

We look forward to doing it again next year for another great cause. I would personally like to thank Amber French for all her help, Teri Van Allen and John Bundus for helping with the prize donations and to all the participants for their tremendous support.
