Tee One Up for Organ & Tissue Transplant Awareness

An upcoming golf tournament hopes to raise funds to help those who have been given a second chance ...

The ‘Cowboys in Pursuit Golf Tournament’ goes Saturday, August 24th at Whitetail Crossing Golf Club in Mundare and is organized by the Second Chance Trail Ride Society. 

President Tom Matthews explains what the society is all about. 

He talks about what the society does with the money it raises. 

Matthews, who is a double lung transplant recipient himself, says his society has raised the bulk of its funds through an annual trail ride but noted that a golf tournament could potentially help them reach a different demographic.

He adds they plan on having a few sport celebrities take part in the event. 

The cost to take part in the tournament is $525 per foursome and those interested can register HERE
