2012 Sandra Schmirler Fundraiser Golf Tournament

Last year members of the Kelowna Curling Club formed a committee and teamed up with the Sandra Schmirler Foundation to raise funds for the Kelowna General Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). A golf tournament was held from August 19th to the 21st, 2011. The two round golf tournament weekend took place at Shadow Ridge Golf Course. The Saturday night featured an impressive silent auction, BBQ dinner and live band.

“It was a fantastic weekend of golf and everyone had a great time while supporting the Kelowna General Hospital’s NICU,” said Norm Allen, last year’s coordinator for the tournament. “We are looking forward to the next tournament in the summer of 2012.

The Sandra Schmirler Foundation is a Canadian Registered Charity dedicated to helping hospitals to 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 over ten years.

Last year’s event raised $20,600 that was put towards the purchase of a specialized incubator in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Kelowna General Hospital.

Details for the 2012 Sandra Schmirler Fundraiser Golf Tournament are currently in the planning process.
