Get your blood pumping for the 22nd annual golf tournament in support of Heart & Stroke 2018 Duvy Cup
CORNWALL, Ontario – The 22nd annual Stroke Fore Stroke Golf Tournament in support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation is teeing off at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club on Friday, July 27.
The event begins with a shotgun start and participants will have a bunch of fun activities and food to enjoy while they make their way around the 18-hole course.
The tournament is $135 per-person, which gets the participant a power cart, burger and beer and a choice of prime rib or chicken marsala for dinner.
Teams will be made from groups of four. There will be prizes for men’s, women’s and mixed teams. A prize for the longest drive, for landing closest to the pin, a 50/50 competition and $30,000 in hole-in-one prizes.
In addition to the prizes that can be one on the green, there will also be a great selection of items up for bid in the silent auction.
This year will be a big one for this tournament, so far, there are 92 participants signed up, which far exceeds last year’s number of 54.
Last year, the tournament raised a little over $10,000 for Heart & Stroke and they are hoping that they can exceed that number this year.
LONG SAULT, Ontario - In Canada, you don’t need negative degree weather to host a hockey tournament, especially if it’s for a great cause.
This Saturday, that is exactly what John Clearly did at the Long Sault outdoor rink.
The Duvy Cup is played in memory of Andrew Duval and gathers funds that go to Recovery Cornwall with more than 50 people joining in to play.
“I grew up with Andrew and played a lot of hockey together. When he passed away I proposed that we do a hockey tournament in his memory,” explained John Cleary.
Each player pays $20 to play with all funds being donated, while afterward, a 50/50 draw collects even more at O’neills pub in Long Sault.
