Nelson golf tournament raises $5,000 for BC Children’s Hospital

Over 100 Nelsonites attended the tenth annual Save-On-Foods golf tournament at Granite Pointe Golf Tournament on Sunday.

Over 100 Nelsonites attended the tenth annual Save-On-Foods golf tournament at Granite Pointe Golf Tournament on Sunday. All the money raised will go to the BC Children’s Hospital.

“It went really well. We got a lot of positive feedback. The majority of the day was fantastic, but the last half hour was a bit rainy,” said committee chair Ella Moorcroft.

And though baby Sky Roulette wasn’t able to remain in attendance, she was on the golfers’ minds as they worked their way through the 18-hole course.

“It was pretty awesome to see everyone out there united for this cause,” Moorcroft said. “Sky is one of several local babies and children who benefit from their services, and obviously there’s way more province-wide.”

Moorcroft praised BC Children’s Hospital, saying it has a cutting-edge research facility and provides crucial care to those who need it.

“A lot of my co-workers and family members have been there, or had children there. A lot of us have been affected in different ways, so we all wanted to help.”

As of press time, the tournament had raised $5,000, with donations continuing to come in.
