Golf for the Cure winds up Ladies Night at Nakusp Centennial Golf Course

About this time every year, the Ladies Golf Club of Nakusp has a wind-up evening of fun, dinner and tons of laughter.

About this time every year, the Ladies Golf Club of Nakusp has a wind-up evening of fun, dinner and tons of laughter.

This year, organizer Cheryl Black went all out and added the 2012 Golf Fore the Cure – sponsored by Subaru and Molson 67 – to what already would have been a great evening. 28 ladies took part in the event, raising a total of $2,600 that will be given to the Arrow Lakes Hospital through the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

“That’s the best part of it, the money raised stays in our community,” says Cheryl.

Not only is it a regular night of golf, Cheryl adds to it by having a putting tournament on the ninth green. Each player had three tries to putt into the hole from 20 feet away. The top six went on to putt from 40 feet away, with Gay Hanson winning the top spot.

There was also a draw for a Golf For the Cure putter and a Taylor Made handbag. You can even win a trip to New York City through Subaru, so who wouldn’t want to come out and not only be able to win all these awesome prizes but to have the chance of vacationing in New York City. Some of the community retailers also pitched in and donated prizes including t-shirts, bags, golf balls and solar lights, which went to the following ladies for their great games of golf for the evening:
