The 4th annual golf tournament, held at The Bonnyville Golf & Country Club, serves to honour Bob & Gisele Klienmann. The Klienmanns were local teachers and very involved in charity initiatives. The Klienmanns passed suddenly in 2011 and friends wanted their legacy to live on, thus the Klienmann cup was born.
The tournament sold out a month prior to its date, with over 100 golfers involved. Along with the entry fee, money was raised through a 50/50 putting challenge, raffles and silent auction.
The event has raised over $100 000 in the last 4 years, with money going to support various charities. This year’s event will benefit four charities, The Bonnyville Boys and Girls Club, The Knights of Columbus Christmas hamper program, Santa’s Elves, and the Quilters Guild.
