FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 10, 2022

25th Anniversary KidSport Golf Tournament Looking for More Golfers!

Vancouver, BC After a two-year absence, KidSport BC is proud to host the 25th Anniversary KidSport Golf Tournament at Morgan Creek Golf and Country Club in South Surrey on Monday, June 20, 2022.

The KidSport BC Golf Tournament attracts golfers for an important community cause, reducing financial barriers for kids to participate in sport. Proceeds from the tournament directly benefit KidSport BC and are critical to helping provide funds for the charity which provides the opportunity for thousands of kids to play organized sport in British Columbia. Tournament golfers, sponsors, and donors play a vital role in the ultimate success of the 25th Anniversary KidSport Golf Tournament. KidSport BC is seeking TEN additional foursomes to ensure the event is a success.

Two years of the pandemic along with the increase in cost of living, have resulted in an increased demand for KidSport BC grants. We anticipate 2022 being one of the most demanding years in recent history for the charity. The dollars raised at the 25th Anniversary Golf Tournament will make it possible to support the increased number of kids in need.

“Sport BC believes in the transformative power of sport, and we’re excited about its return for our members and for kids across the province, but we know there are many families who will struggle financially, says Sport BC’s President & CEO, Rob Newman. “Cost shouldn’t be a barrier that prevents kids from experiencing the positive benefits of sport participation and we are proud that KidSport reduces the financial challenges for families throughout the province. The KidSport Golf Tournament helps us help more kids and families!”
