Stettler Health Services held their annual golf tournament this past Saturday, June 22 at the Stettler Golf and Country Club.

Seventy brave golfers came out in very wet conditions to help raise money for a very worthy cause – purchase equipment for the upcoming renovated ER department at the Stettler Hospital.

Cheryl Barros, the chairperson of the tournament, commented “I am amazed and thankful at how our community comes together to support events. The conditions were less than ideal but the golf course staff worked hard to get it ready for us and the people came with great attitudes which enabled a fun day to be held by all. With the support of the people and businesses of this community we were able to raise $6,500 for the hospital for which we are very appreciative.”

This money will go a long way towards the ambitious $400,000 goal the Stettler Health Services Foundation has set out to fund equipment for the Stettler Hospital which is now going through an extensive renovation.
