Crofton mill raises $31,000 for United Way Cowichan

The Cottonwood Ladies Golf Club recently delivered proceeds from its Field Day fundraiser

The Cottonwood Ladies Golf Club recently delivered proceeds from its Field Day fundraiser to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation.

The sold-out event hosted 124 golfers to support health care through the hospital foundation. Registration fees, “Buy a Guy” to caddy, and year-round fundraising efforts allowed the club to donate $2,000 to aid the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH).

Organizers were overwhelmed with the “amazing support” of sponsors who provided prizes, services such as massages at tee boxes, and hole sponsorships, according to a press release.

Since 2005, the golfers have given almost $8,500 to the hospital foundation, and this was their largest gift to date. The next Field Day will occur in 2016.
