12th Annual String and Wing Golf Tournament
The Heritage Inn’s 12th Annual String and Wing Charity Golf Tournament in Brooks, Alberta took place on Friday August 24, 2012. The weather was determined to ruin the festivities, but the 124 participants managed to laugh it off and have a good time anyways (although some sneaked home to dry off before dinner!).
This year the tournament was benefiting Ashton’s Place, a local organization that in place to support and provide assistance to youth in the Brooks area. Several of the youth who use the centre’s resources volunteered at the event to run registration, sell raffle tickets, and run the putting and chipping contests on the course. The Heritage Inn would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the tournament, and to our great sponsors for the prizes donated and funds raised for this great organization.
Although the final numbers have not been calculated yet, it is estimated that about $7,000 was raised for the youth centre.
