Community support and special guests are combining to make the 2nd annual Charity Golf Challenge a success.
Organizer Brent Morning is thrilled at the response to this event, which raises money for Friends of We Care, a network of 84 member sponsor organizations from the food service and hospitality industry united by a common goal of bringing joy to kids with disabilities. Friends of We Care relies on events as a major fundraising tool.
Morning is confident they’ll surpass last year’s total.
The 2015 tournament will be held at  Kettle Creek, Cardinal Golf Club’s Executive Course on Thursday, June 4.
Friends of We Care has been in existence for over 31 years with the sole purpose of raising money to send children with disabilities to summer camp.
“The impact that Brent has within his community is amazing.  Having experienced the great things that Easter Seals provide children personally enables Brent to speak from the heart,” said Kevin Collins, executive director of Friends of We Care. “This event will go a long way in helping Friends of We Care achieve its goal of assisting kids with disabilities attend summer camp.”
Morning is thrilled to have four-time Canadian Olympian skier Brian Stemmle as the special guest again this year.
Also on hand will be Canadian actor Neil Crone, best know as Fred Tupper on the Little Mosque on the Prairie. He also played Ray Cooper on the TV show Really Me, running 2011-2013. Crone is also a Second City veteran improvisor, host, stand-up comic and winner of a Canadian Comedy Award, Neil is also an award-winning newspaper columnist and children’s author.
Following golf, there will be a buffet lunch at Cardinal and a small silent auction. Items for the auction include an autographed photo of hockey legend Bobby Orr, and an autographed jersey from Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Black Hawks.
“Cardinal has been great hosts,” Morning said. “It’s something I enjoy doing.”
