Prince George, B.C. – All the numbers have been crunched,  and  the Prince George Cougars’ Charity Golf Tournament  has   resulted in  more than a hundred thousand dollars to help healthcare in  the region.

The 6th annual Prince George Cougars Alumni Hospital Charity Golf Tournament resulted in a record breaking  $105, 815.93  raised over the two  day event.

“Prince George continues to amaze us as one of the most charitable communities in the entire province” said Tournament Chairman Gary Samis.  “Over the past six years, this alumni golf tournament has raised close to $400,000 for much needed medical equipment at our local regional hospital,”

Funds raised this year, will be put  towards  purchasing the first of the ECHO Ultrasounds needed for the Regional Cardiac Strategy at University Hospital of Northern British Columbia.

Judy Neiser, CEO for the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, says the community’s generosity will be put to good use, “This is another year of outstanding support for both the PG Cougars, their Alumni, and healthcare in the North. We couldn’t be prouder of the partnership we have with these organizations and those in the community that continue to support this tournament.”
