What started as a fun day full of golf turned into an exciting moment for the Northern Lights Health Foundation.
The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, Oil Sands Chapter held its annual golf tournament back in June and were able to raise $25,760 for local healthcare.
In a release, Chair of the CIM Oil Sands Branch Isaac Bussin says they were able to set a new record for funds raised.
“The Oil Sands Branch chooses to raise money for the NLHF as health is the foundation of a strong community. This year, as a result of our dedicated members, our Branch was able to match the first $5,000 raised through the tournament.”
Executive Director of the NLHF Cindy Amerongen says the funds will go towards different healthcare innovations in Wood Buffalo.
“Third Party Fundraisers, such as the CIM, are crucial to ensuring we can continue to fund health care innovation in our community for all residents to enjoy.”
A total of 144 golfers took part in the tournament.
