Firefighters hosting scramble in support of burn fund

The Prince Rupert Professional Fire Fighters can’t wait for you to ‘putt’ your team on the list for their Annual Best Ball Scramble

The Prince Rupert Professional Fire Fighters can’t wait for you to ‘putt’ your team on the list for their Annual Best Ball Scramble to be held on Saturday, July 4.

The event will take place at the lush, vibrant and challenging 18-hole Prince Rupert Golf Course. Support for the inaugural Best Ball Scramble fundraiser has been tremendous, with donations and sponsorship being received from a number of local businesses.

“We’re looking forward to hosting this event as one of our annual fundraisers in support of the Burn Fund,” stated organizers at the Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department, who have also been busy practicing their putting techniques.

All proceeds from the event will go to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, a charity organization supported locally by the Prince Rupert Professional Fire Fighters who extend ongoing efforts to raise funds for this worthwhile charity.

Teams of four or individuals can register for the event at the Prince Rupert Golf Course Pro Shop or by calling 250-624-2000.

The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund has been providing Burn Prevention and Survivor Support programs, and funding medical care and training for the people of British Columbia and the Yukon for almost four decades. The Burn Fund’s vision is built by more than 3,900 professional fire fighters from 53 communities in British Columbia and the Yukon who dedicate their funds, time and expertise.

To make a donation or for more information on the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund and their many programs, please visit www.burnfund.org.
