The 1st Annual Ladies' Open 18-hole Golf Tournament in support of cancer awareness is coming up.
This tournament is a first of its kind, which was influenced by a local family.
"Sadly the McDonald family lost their wife and mother Anchilla to cancer this year. Her daughter Aimee and I have been talking about running a tournament in memory of her and all of those who lost loved ones to this terrible disease," says organizer Megan Derouard.
"Anchilla was a huge drive in women's golf. She originally ran the Wednesday night women's league at Beauty Bay. Aimee and I have continued it on in Kenora after her passing. So we thought this would be a great opportunity to celebrate her life and all of those who have passed to this disease," she adds.
The tournament will take place Saturday, September 24 at the Kenora Golf and Country Club. Registration will commence at 11:00 am with tee-off at noon.
Entry fee is $400.00 for a team of four, which will include 18 holes of golf, a cart, dinner and prizes.
It is important that teams register by the end of the day on Monday, September 12.
