Celebrating over two decades of success with the Forget Me Not Golf Tournament
Join us in celebrating yet another year of success following our Forget Me Not Golf Tournament held on May 21 at Northview Golf & Country Club. This year we raised over $580,000. To date, the event has raised over $8.8 million dollars in support of the Society.

Proceeds from the tournament are divided equally between funding research for a cure and providing education programs and support services for those affected by dementia.
The day saw participants enjoy a day of golfing, followed by a dinner with silent and live auctions in the evening, which was emceed by Global BC’s Steve Darling.
As always we owe this success to the dedication and commitment of our remarkable volunteer organizing committee, volunteers and of course, our donors and sponsors. A special thank you to our presenting sponsor, Canaccord Genuity.
We would also like to honour Marilyn Stewart, who passed away in October of last year. Marilyn was a dedicated supporter of the Forget Me Not Golf Tournament since the inaugural event in 1993. She attended every year and generously donated auction items, prizes and flowers. She was a remarkable woman who was truly instrumental to the success of the tournament. She will be missed.
