Susan Mitchell, from Chinook Cove Golf and RV, was on hand at Barriere Secondary on Oct. 16, to present the school’s athletics department with a check for $2,200.

Mitchell said the donation was a culmination of 50/50 draws held over their season at four major tournaments.  The Senior Men’s Tournament in June, the Mixed Pairs Tournament in July, and their signature events, the Men’s Fall Amateur and the Ladies Fall Classics, both in September.

Also contributing were the Ladies and Men’s Clubs.  They subsidized the Chinook Cove Junior program so that they could donate the funds they normally would use for the Junior program.  In total, they collected $1,100, which Chinook Cove Golf and RV has matched to make the donation $2,200.

In addition to this donation, Chinook Cove has opened their doors to Barriere’s schools to allow class visits to their facility at no charge.

“We recognize that the success of our business and community involves our children, and any way we can contribute to their well-being is worth it,” stated Mitchell.
