As members of a senior men’s golf club, we, and our Sponsor, The LOHN FOUNDATION, hope to return some benefits to the community in which we live by holding our 22nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, September 8, 2017, for Prostate Cancer Research of the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
The event is run entirely by our members and volunteers with 100 percent of net proceeds going directly to the Charity. From 1996 to 2016 we have raised over $1,000,000. Every penny we raise goes directly to the scientist without any administration charges. Last year, 2016, we raised over $100,000 for prostate cancer research.
We would gratefully accept any amount of support in the form of product prizes or cash donations for our Charity of the Year.
