Golf Canada is pleased to announce that Burlington Golf & Country Club will host the 13th annual Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru National Event on Sept. 12.
The event marks the celebration of another year of success for the program, which aims to increase women’s participation in the sport while fundraising for the fight against breast cancer. During its 13 years, Golf Fore the Cure has raised over $5.4 million for breast cancer research towards program partners Canadian Cancer Society and Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation. The participation program has exposed over 100,000 women to the sport of golf—a statistic that hits home with Burlington Golf & Country Club’s Head Professional, Trevor Fackrell.
“We have a very strong female membership at Burlington Golf & Country Club and are thrilled to be supporting Golf Fore the Cure and its powerful impact on both women’s golf and breast cancer research,” said Fackrell, a PGA of Canada Class “A” member. “We’re really excited to be hosting the National Event and look forward to a very special celebration at our golf club.”
The 18-hole charity event expects to host over 120 women, including the top-three fundraising teams from across Canada as well as program ambassador and Rogers Sportsnet broadcaster Evanka Osmak, who will be delivering opening remarks.
New in 2016, Pink Partner adidas Golf will be the official apparel provider at the event, distributing full outfits to the top-three teams and one clothing piece to all other participants. Presenting partner Subaru will continue to extend their commitment to the National Event with “Subaru’s Safest Drive” mini-game, adding to their generous gifting at the event. The evening will commence with a three-course dinner, coupled with speeches from keynote speakers and followed by a special prize draw.
“The National Event is always a special day of celebrating the success of the program and what it has done for women’s golf,” said Jeff Thompson, Chief Sport Officer with Golf Canada. “It’s an important culmination of everything that has been accomplished thus far, due in large part to the support we get from our great corporate partnerships and most importantly, our volunteers across the country.”
Registration is open to the public and also to corporate teams.
