Wednesday nights are spent in the park, but this Thursday they'll be on the green.
The 16th annual Hillcrest Golf Club Charity tournament is back and taking over one of Moose Jaw's local courses to support the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.
For the past month, the Foundation and golf community have signed up and encouraged others to do the same. This year the annual event will see funds go to the Foundation's 2019 campaign, with their focus turning to the next generation of digital mammography equipment through the Mammography Matters campaign.
“We are thrilled that the Hillcrest Ladies 18 and the Senior Men’s Leagues chose the Health Foundation to be the recipient of the event. The Moose Jaw Health Foundation is committed to reducing the incidence of breast cancer, and reducing the mortality from cancer in our community – early detection is key," James Murdock, Volunteer Chairman of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation explained. "The new mammography equipment is truly the next great advancement in digital imaging to help detect breast cancer. The new mammography equipment features enhanced digital imaging and provides more comfort to the patient during an examination. The Foundation Board and the medical staff at the Hospital greatly appreciate every dollar raised at the Tournament.”
Attendees will be participating by themselves or as teams with an 8 am shotgun start Thursday morning. All proceeds from the event go to the Foundation's campaign.
