Golf fundraiser benefits two sport clubs

An 18 hole joint fundraiser for two local youth sport clubs was held at the Princeton Golf Course.

On Saturday, August 10, 2013, forty-four golfers set out on the Princeton Golf Course to participate in an 18 hole joint fundraiser for two local youth sport clubs.  This year the Princeton Skating Club and the Princeton Secondary School (PSS) Junior Rebels Basketball program joined forces to organize this fun golf tournament. Event organizers, Suzanne Holland and Barb Gould, received generous local business support for the event and they are truly appreciative of all the donations.

Capri Insurance sponsored the Putting Contest. There was a four-way tie so the golfers tried one more time to sink a long challenging putt. The event ended with Richard White sinking the putt and winning the $150 prize.

Westland Insurance sponsored a $10,000 Hole In One on the seventh hole  and Valley First Insurance sponsored a $10,000 Hole In One prize on the 15 hole – one golfer, Dave Holland, came closest to sinking the dream shot on the 15 green but the grand prize remained unclaimed.

Chef Peter provided an outstanding barbecue dinner buffet for all the participants to enjoy. After the dinner prizes were awarded; Richard White, Rob Hicks and Al and Shar Anderson were first to select from the prize table for low score. Linda Thompson, Suzanne Holland, Lisa Coulter and Marv Carlson were up next to select followed by Aaron and Hanna Gould and Dave and Eric Holland. The remaining participants were selected by draw.

Shar Anderson won the Ladies Longest Putt prize and the Ladies Long Drive (0-29 HCP) and Loretto Emmons won the Ladies Long Drive (30+ HCP).  Shar and Al Anderson won the Pick-A-Card Long Drives.  Glen Weissbach won Men’s Long Drive and the Men’s KP.  Kelsey Keglovic won the Ladies KP.  Craig Thompson won the Junior KP.

Silent Auction items were bid on throughout the evening and door prizes were also handed out.

Thank you to all the families and friends who came out to golf and who give their support throughout the year.
