The Children’s Charity Golf Classic in Bonnyville has received recognition on the highest stage, receiving a National Philanthropy Award.
The golf tournament has raised nearly $90,000 for Stollery Children’s Hospital in the five years since it started. The event is the brain child of Mark Reid, whose daughter is a frequent patient of the hospital. He’s amazed at how fast the tournament has grown and sees the award as an accomplishment for everyone involved.
The tournament was one of two projects nominated by the hospital out of over 400 candidates.
