Golf Fore the Cure National Event to be held at the Thornhill ClubWritten by Golf Canada
Golf Canada is pleased to announce that the Thornhill Club will host the 15th annual Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru National Event on Sept. 24.
The event will mark a celebration of the success of all Golf Fore the Cure events held nationwide during the 2018 season. Since its inception in 2003, Golf Fore the Cure has introduced the sport to over 14,000 women while simultaneously raising over $6.4 million for breast cancer research, with proceeds going to program partners Canadian Cancer Society and Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.
“The Thornhill Club is proud to be the host venue for the 2018 Golf Fore the Cure National Event,” said Todd McGrath, Head PGA of Canada professional at Thornhill Club. “We have a very strong female membership and are proud to host an event that supports both the growth of women’s golf and breast cancer research.”
The 18-hole charity event expects over 120 women, including the top-three fundraising teams from across Canada as well as program ambassador and Rogers Sportsnet broadcaster Evanka Osmak, who will be delivering opening remarks.
Founded in 1922, Thornhill Club was designed by renowned golf course architect Stanley Thompson. The club has a long tradition of hosting major events including the 1987 Ontario Men’s Amateur Championship, the 2006 Canadian University/College Championship and the 2014 Canadian Junior Girls Championship. In addition, Thornhill was the site that played host to 1945 Canadian Open where Byron Nelson claimed his remarkable 11th victory in a row.
The day will culminate with a special presentation involving representatives from the Canadian Cancer Society, who will be on hand to accept the cheque for funds raised nationally through this program during the summer.
Presenting partner Subaru continues to extend their commitment to the program with the “Subaru Safest Drive” mini-game, adding to their generous gifting at the event. Pink Partner adidas Golf will be providing an apparel piece to all participants in addition to providing the top-three fundraising teams with a winter gift package including golf pants, sweater and shoes. The evening will commence with a three-course dinner, coupled with speeches from keynote speakers and followed by a special prize draw.
Registration is open to public and corporate teams.
