Canadian National Team Skiers and Cross Country Canada staff had the pleasure of joining Haywood Securities at Carnmoney Golf Club on September 8th for Haywood's 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation.
Tournament participants were greeted on the 16th tee by Olympians Devon Kershaw, Ivan Babikov and Perianne Jones. Golfers were presented with a Cross Country Canada gift package which included signed memorabilia and were each given the opportunity to have photos taken with the skiers and their World Cup medals. A CCC prize package featuring an official NST parka was also included among the evening's silent auction prizes.
"What a great event Haywood put on for the Alberta Children's Hospital. The weather was stunning and everybody out there was having a great time," commented National Ski Team member Devon Kershaw. "It was nice to come out and support Haywood in their event, as they've become like family after over 10 years of generous game-changing support for our team and to share such a wonderful day with great friends, all for a meaningful cause, was fantastic."
The event raised more than $85,000 for the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation, with proceeds to be re-invested in the hospital and child health needs in the Calgary area.
