thank you everyone!
The SCT&I Charity Golf Tournament, recognized as one of the most successful golf charity events in Kamloops, entered its 23rd year! Proceeds benefit the Royal Inland Hospital (RIH). Money raised will be used to purchase much needed and essential beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). These beds are used for patients on life support or requiring other life saving measures. Special mattresses which allow for increased blood flow and airflow immensely increase patient comfort and help speed recovery.
To comply with provincial COVID-19 regulations, the set-up this year was a little different. In order to avoid large gatherings, golfers played their favorite course & made a donation to support our cause! They took photos and posted on hashtag #roundforrih #SCT&I and tagged us on social media @rihfound & on Facebook to be entered in to win $500!
In addition, anyone, player or not, was able to purchase raffle tickets ($25) and 50/50 ($10) tickets. Raffle prizes included fantastic bundles from local business including: Abbott Wealth Management, Norkam Mechanical Group & Sandbar Grill, Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery and Sparkling Hill, Tirecraft, WestJet & KPMG, and The Lash and Brown Studio.
The SCT&I Charity Golf Tournament, through its previous events, has raised over $2 million toward patient care equipment for various departments at RIH, including: OR, Emergency Room and Trauma Centre, Cancer Centre Chemotherapy Treatment Area, a 2nd CT Scanner Campaign, and a new Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
We encourage YOU to support this worthy cause and help keep our hospital strong by funding the specific equipment needed. Thank you in advance for your valued support.
