Golf tourney raised $30,000 for cancer groups

Meadowlands Golf Club’s Drive ‘Fore’ the Cure golf tournament last month raised $30,000

Meadowlands Golf Club’s Drive ‘Fore’ the Cure golf tournament last month raised $30,000 in support of breast and prostate cancer research and Red Deer Cancer Clinic.

The event attracted 134 golfers from all over Alberta, lots from Medicine Hat and even a few from the United States, said Sarah Eglese, sales and marketing coordinator at the course.

She explained the impetus for the tournament was that Cathy Stober, the wife of one of the course owners, Randy Stober, celebrated one year as cancer free after a bout with breast cancer.

Many of the golfers who participated were friends of theirs from Medicine Hat.

The tournament, which was held Aug. 17, also featured live and silent auctions. Donations and a portion of entry fees contributed to the total raised for the cancer causes.

“We reached our goal and raised $30,000,” Eglese exclaimed.
