RBC charity golf tourney set to return

Press Release

RBC Financial Group once again is partnering with the Riverside Foundation for Health Care to organize its fourth-annual RBC Charity Golf Classic.
It’s slated for Saturday, June 26 at Kitchen Creek Golf Course.
The funds raised this year are being designated to support cancer programs at Riverside Health Care Facilities, Inc.
“Whether it’s a program to raise awareness about cancer prevention, a diagnostic tool to help detect cancer, or equipment to administer treatment, it’s an important cause,” stressed Heather Johnson, the RBC’s branch manager in Fort Frances.
Johnson said RBC staff members volunteer their time to put this event on because they are committed to making a difference in local health care.
“We selected Riverside because they provide programs to prevent, detect, and treat cancer right here in the Rainy River District,” she noted.
“This illness affects many of our friends, family, and loved ones and we want to do what we can to enhance these services, close to home.”
Foundation director Teresa Hazel is pleased to be working with RBC Financial Group for the fourth-consecutive year.
“It’s a first-class golf tournament and we really do have a lot of fun,” she chuckled.
“We have had outstanding support from the community the past three years and we anticipate another successful event this year.”
There are spots available for 144 golfers, or 36 teams of four. Individuals are encouraged to sign up and they will be put on a team.
The tournament features a “best ball” format and there will be prizes for first, second, and third place, along with lots of other great prizes for participants.
The registration fee is $100/person or $400/team, which includes 18 holes of golf, a delicious dinner, “spot” prizes, a charitable receipt for a portion of the fee, and a chance to win lots of great prizes.
Plus you’ll be helping out a great cause!
Registration forms are available at Kitchen Creek, Heron Landing, and International Falls Golf and Country Club.
