The 22nd Annual Forget Me Not Golf Tournament raises $650,000!
The Forget Me Not Golf Tournament is the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s largest annual research fundraiser. The 2016 tournament, held on Thursday, May 20 at Northview Golf & Country Club in Surrey raised $650,000. Golf committee chair, Don Towers, proudly presented Maria Howard, the Society’s Chief Executive Officer, with a cheque for this year’s proceeds.
The tournament’s success is due to the support received from the volunteer committee, and the many sponsors, donors and volunteers who participate year after year. A special thank you goes to this year’s presenting sponsor, Canaccord Genuity.
To date, the event has raised over $9.5million in support of the Society. Proceeds from the tournament are divided equally between funding research for a cure and supporting families in B.C. who are living with the disease.
