2013 Annual Barriere 911 Emergency Services Golf Tournament asks for support from the community

On August 24, 2013, the Annual Barriere 911 Emergency Services Golf Tournament will take place at Chinook Cove

911 Golf Tournament

On August 24, 2013, the Annual Barriere 911 Emergency Services Golf Tournament will be taking place at the Chinook Cove Golf Course.

We are proud to carry on this tradition and support local charities in Barriere and area.

Over the years, our group has raised thousands of dollars in support of local charities and non-profit organizations.  Last year we provided $6,000 in bursaries and donations.  We funded school programs, two scholarships, kids community garden, Rural Living Expo, Barriere Youth Curling, and Barriere Recreation Society.

All used the funds to enhance programs in place, start new programs and provide area youth with diverse opportunities to allow all to participate.

We are aware that your business receives many requests for sponsorship throughout the year, however, we also know that you realize that an event such as this cannot function without sponsorship.

We are looking for sponsorship in any form, such as cash, merchandise, or services for our prizes and silent auction.

All sponsors will receive recognition in the welcome package for all teams, on each of the dinner tables, and in the local newspapers.

In addition to this, you may receive one of the following, depending on the level of sponsorship.

A $100 or more sponsorship will provide you with a hole sponsorship sign.

A $200 or more sponsorship will provide you with a sponsorship sign at the putting green located at the clubhouse where all players will be registering and participating in a putting competition and hanging around while waiting for the evening dinner and prize presentation.

This will allow you more exposure to all players and other people attending the event that are not golfing.

A $500 or more sponsorship will allow you to put up signage at the putting green and clubhouse during dinner and prizes which will give you full exposure throughout the event.

This level of sponsorship will also allow for a two person paid entry into the tournament to form part of a team ($110 value, not including cart).

Cheques can be made payable to: Barriere 911 Emergency Services Golf Tournament.

The funds raised this year will go towards supporting our local area youth programs, to be announced.

We want to thank you for your consideration and look forward to your participation in this great event.

We also would love to see you attend and participate in the event with your golf team.
