The Royal City Rotary Club together with the Rotary Club of New Westminster is looking for golfers to participate in the 25th Annual Pot of Gold Charity Golf Tournament on Aug. 24.
Over the past 24 years, this event has raised over $560,000 for local charities. Over $34,000 was raised from the 2019 tournament alone. Some of the beneficiaries in our community in the past have included Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation, St Mary’s Health Foundation, Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation, West Coast Kids’ Charity and Pathfinder Youth Centre Society, among others.
Royal City Rotary’s principal focus has been on programs for youth in the New Westminster area, and we will continue to promote them. The Rotary Club of New Westminster will be supporting youth programs as well as medical clinics in developing countries.
Again this year, the two local Rotary Clubs will also donate part of the net proceeds to Salvation Army New Westminster and the Lower Mainland Purpose Society (an alternate education facility) to further their valuable work with individuals facing their own challenges in the community.
“Past tournaments have been sold out,” says a news release. “We hope to repeat that success this year.”
The event takes place at Mayfair Lakes Golf Club in Richmond. You can click here in order to register.
