Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Shatters Fundraising Record
The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation held its 16th Annual TELUS Golf Classic fundraiser at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club this past Friday, September 23. The day started off with a caddy auction where all the participants had a chance to bid on playing with a few Whistler locals…gold medal Olympian skicross athlete Ashleigh McIvor, pro snowboarder Devun Walsh and downhill ski legend and Olympian Steve Podborski. No big deal.
We aren’t sure if getting Ashleigh McIvor to play golf, and climb a tree, with these guys has anything to do with it, but the Foundation shattered their previous fundraising record and raised over $120,000 for Local Sea to Sky Charities. And it wasn’t even sunny out!
All in all it was a great day for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing financial support to registered non-profit organizations whose activities provide benefit to residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor in the areas of health, human services, education, recreation, arts and culture and the environment with an emphasis on children, youth and family programs.
