The second annual SPL/NRM golf tournament raised $30

Golf tourney raises $30,000

For the second year, the Selkirk Paving/Nelson Ready Mix Invitational Golf Tournament for Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation raised $30,000.

For the second straight year, the Selkirk Paving/Nelson Ready Mix Invitational Golf Tournament for Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation raised $30,000 for the Foundation’s Legacy Fund.

Last year when the management at SPL/NRM  asked Tony Maida to organize a charity golf tournament, the decision about which charity to support was obvious.

“It was one of my mom’s favourite organizations so when they asked me to look after getting a golf tournament going, it was an easy choice for me because Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation was so important to her,” said Maida, whose mother Emma passed away from cancer.

Foundation Chair Pat Dooley was excited that the event matched the impressive total from last year, increasing the Legacy Fund — the Foundation’s long term endowment — by $60,000 in two years.

“The amount raised is unbelievable and will go a long way toward our goal of enhancing our Legacy Fund. The sponsors and volunteers who contributed so much, and especially Tony Maida, reflect the kind of support that bodes well for the future of our hospital,” said Dooley

Dooley stated that the best news to come out of the tournament was the announcement that it would continue as an annual event.
