12th ANNUAL ROTARY CLUB OF PEMBERTON AND PEMBERTON & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 2017 GOLF TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER
The Rotary Club of Pemberton and the Pemberton & District Chamber of Commerce invite you to a joint fundraiser at Big Sky Golf Club on Thursday June 15, 2017. So make sure you mark that date on your calendars now!
This annual event has alternated between two great venues, Big
Sky Golf Club and The Meadows at Pemberton.
The networking, fellowship, golf, competition and laughs participants experience are remembered long after the golf game ends.
The golf tournament is one of the largest and most important fundraisers for the Rotary Club of Pemberton that allows the club to continue to support local, international and youth-based projects. In recent years, the Club has raised funds for a playground at Signal Hill Elementary School, the completion of the kitchen at the Pemberton & District Community Centre, and a fitness circuit for One Mile Lake and the grass maze in Phase 1 of the Playscape project at the Pemberton & District Community Centre .
Currently, the club is raising funds to support the One Mile Lake Park Master Plan in partnership with the Village of Pemberton, with a particular focus on the dog beach and teen dock. The Rotary Club of Pemberton is committed to the Adopt-a-highway program and supports the Pemberton Secondary School through its bursary program support of the school's Youth Interact Club. It is also pursuing an exciting education program called iEmpowerment and is currently spearheading its implementation in Lesotho, Africa. When at the tournament, please talk to one of our members if you are interested in being a part of our club.
This golf tournament is also the single biggest fundraiser for the Pemberton & District Chamber of Commerce. As a business organization, the Chamber is a strong advocate for business and dedicates its energy to strengthening the business community, helping the Village of Pemberton and surrounding area to thrive.
Funds from the golf tournament allow the Chamber to operate the Visitor Center, support the local business community by providing numerous networking opportunities and participate in business-enhancing initiatives. The Chamber will also continue funding an annual bursary for a student graduating from Pemberton Secondary School.
We thank you for supporting this community event and look forward to seeing you in June!
