The Nick Taylor Charity Classic teed off under sunny skies Thursday at Cultus Lake Golf Course.
From a pre-round meet-and-greet with Canadian Open champion Nick Taylor, as well as time on the Top Tracer Range Simulator Experience, lunch, 18-hole tournament, dinner and after party – including the amazing putting contest at Tap-Ins – the Classic was a golf enthusiast’s dream. And while tourney participants are getting an amazing day of golf and memories, it’s the local charities that are the real beneficiaries of the event.
This year’s focus for funds raised was kids and amateur sports, namely Jumpstart, which helps kids who don’t have the financial means to participate in sports. Junior golf programs throughout the Fraser Valley will also see funding as will endowment scholarships at UFV.
“Jumpstart helps kids facing financial and accessibility barriers access sport and play,” Taylor said. “Since 2005, Jumpstart has helped over 2.4 million kids across the country get involved in activities like hockey, soccer, swimming and ballet.
