The Bennett and Albert County Health Care (BACH) Foundation held its 5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on June 15th under sunny skies and with ideal playing conditions. A total of 23 teams of four players participated. The tournament raised $10,000. All monies raised will be directed to the purchase of equipment for the Albert County Community Health Centre, training of the centre's employees, support of the centre's satellite office in Hillsborough, and support of wellness-related community initiatives.
The BACH Foundation has made significant investments in the health and wellness of area residents through the community health centre and through local community initiatives. For example, the Foundation recently purchased waiting-room seating for the community health centre at a cost of $7,000. Also, the BACH Foundation recently purchased small curling stones to support the Fundy Curling Club's Little Rocks program. The curling club will use these smaller stones to promote youth participation in the sport of curling.
The Bennett and Albert County Health Care Foundation would like to thank its many sponsors who made this year's golf tournament possible. With their support, the Foundation has raised $50,000 from the golf tournament over the past five years. In particular, the Foundation would like to acknowledge the event's gold sponsor Scotiabank, which donated a total of $1,319.
