Firefighters offer support for ADTS golf tourney

The golf tournament has changed this year and the event will be held at the Meadowlands Golf Course on June 22.

Chilliwack Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society is partnering with Ann Davis Transition Society for the ADTS 2013 Charity Golf Tournament on June 22.

The venue has changed this year and the event will be at the Meadowlands Golf Course.

The Charitable Society has shown their support in the past by attending the annual ADTS Bowlathon, but this year they’re making the relationship a little more formal.

“We support ADTS not only through donations but also we have foursomes registering to golf in the annual tourney,” said Ben Fryer, a director for the Charitable Society. “We want to make this a long-term partnership.”

Part of the society’s mandate is to assist its members in supporting community programs, he said, and the firefighters have raised funds with the sale of calendars.

The year 2013 marks the fifth year of the charity golf event, which raises funds for ADTS children’s programs, such as Caught in the Middle and Expressive Art Therapy, said Shelley Bolan, manager of the ADTS Transition House.

“With the new partnership, I think it’s going to be an incredible event that’s mutually beneficial for both groups.”

Charity Golf Tournament is June 22 at the par-4 Meadowlands Golf & Country Club, at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start.

The $75 ticket per person includes golf and a buffet dinner. Foursomes preferred.

There will be a silent auction, prizes, a 50-50 Draw, as well as a chipping and putting contest. There will be a “Hole in One” for a 2012 Red Polaris Sportsman 500 Touring Edition, sponsored by Five Star Motorsports, or “Hole in One” $5000 sponsored by Investors Group.

Secure a spot by calling the Meadowlands Golf Course at 604-792-2276 ( for Credit Card Payments) or Ann Davis Transition Society at 604-792-2760 to pay by cash or cheque.
