PHOTOS: Jumpstart’s first ever golf tournament

Thirty golfers were out of the green at Top of the Hill Golf Course Friday

The first ever Canadian Tire Jumpstart for Golf tournament was held at Top of the Hill Golf Course the afternoon of May 11.

The tournament had 30 golfers signed up to have fun and raise money for children in the community.

Along with the tournament, a silent auction, barbecue lunch and a steak dinner were all part of the day’s event.

The tournament also had many hanging baskets for sale, with the proceeds also going towards the charity.

The funds raised through the Jumpstart for Gold tournament went back into the community to help children in need.

The Jumpstart program helps children and families not only become more active, but also supports those in financial need have the same chance to participate.

Since 2011, the Red Deer and Sylvan Lake Jumpstart program has helped around 7,000 children be active and participate in new and favourite sports.
