Golf tourney to aid KGH given a boost

The Sandra Schmirler Foundation has announced it will provide matching funds to help meet a golf tournament fundraising goal of $40,000 to purchase equipment for the  Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Kelowna General Hospital.

The Schmirler foundation is a Canadian registered charity dedicated to helping hospitals care for premature and critically ill babies.

It is named for Olympic gold medalist and three time world champion curler Sandra Schmirler and has been helping NICUs for more than a decade.

On Aug. 19 to 21, the  Schmirler Foundation will team up with a local committee to raise funds for the KGH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

This two round golf tournament weekend will take place at Shadow Ridge Golf Course.

On Saturday evening, Aug. 20, Rusty’s Steakhouse and Grill will feature an impressive silent auction, BBQ dinner and a live band.

“This event is being organized to raise $40,000 for the KGH NICU,” said Norm Allen, coordinator for the tournament.

“The Sandra Schmirler Foundation will partner with the organizing committee and will match funds raised through cash donations to a maximum of $20,000.”
