Annual golf tournament raises $9,100 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel

Eight teams raised money for the local charity this year

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Golf for Kids’ Sake fundraising tournament took place at Richbar Golf and Gardens on Sunday Sept. 10, bringing in a total of $9,100 for the child-mentoring charity.

The event started at 1 p.m. sharp, and eight teams showed up to play a fun round in aid of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel (BBBSQ).

Margaret Mok raised the most money overall with her pledges, bringing in $1,490. She won three nights at Coast Blackcomb Suites in Whistler, a prize donated by the Keen Family Foundation.

All the teams enjoyed the afternoon golf game, although teams weren’t keeping score.

“We are having a lot of fun, but more importantly, we’re raising money for a good cause,” said golfer Clint Winchester.

“No one’s here to beat each other, we’re out here to draw some cash for Big Brothers Big Sisters.”

The event finished with a dinner put on by BBBSQ.
