The Brain Injury Association of Sault Ste. Marie & District will be holding a fundraiser golf tournament beginning with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start at Crimson Ridge on Thursday, Sept. 21.
There will be pulled pork and brisket sandwiches for lunch, chicken and ribs for dinner. Vegetarian options are available upon request.
The entry fee is $700 per team of four.
Those who aren’t golfers but who would like to join for dinner only can buy tickets for $60 each.
Players are asked to play ready golf and are expected to play in six hours or less.
Proceeds will benefit the Sault Ste. Marie & District Brain Injury Association.
The Association strives to reduce the impact of brain injuries within the community through education, awareness and support of the survivors and caregivers.
The need for funding is real, as the Brain Injury Association Sault Ste. Marie & District receives some funding from the Ontario Brain Injury Association but not as much as communities in southern Ontario.
The Brain Injury Canada website states that in Canada, two per cent of the population lives with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and that there are 200,000 concussions annually in Canada.
Anyone interested in being a sponsor for the event can email the Brain Injury Association Sault Ste. Marie & District or call (705) 971-1050.
Teams for the fundraiser tournament can register online.
