For the first time in its six-year history, the Emily Brydon Youth Foundation is unable to fully meet the demand for its youth programs and services. This fact speaks more the success of the foundation than anything else. Over the last 6 years, they have donated more than $100,000 to spearhead and support community programs for youth across the Elk Valley. The programs have been wildly popular and this is what presents a challenge: in order to accommodate the growing number of youth in need, these programs need funds to expand.
 
This is where you come in!
 
On Saturday, September 21st, the Emily Brydon Youth Foundation will host its annual golf tournament at the Fernie Golf and Country Club. Cost is $180 per person and 98% of all proceeds will go directly to support Elk Valley youth. The event is open to all skill levels, so don’t be shy if you’re less than amazing on the links. 
 
The annual golf tournament is a big part of the organization’s fundraising efforts, generating $90,000 over the last 6 years. 
 
It’s a treat both for the opportunity to contribute to such a vital cause and to play a round of golf on one of the best courses in the Kootenays. Fernie Golf and Country Club is a scenic 18-hole championship course both challenging and accessible, with a driving range, restaurant and well stocked pro shop onsite. 
 
You’ll also get the chance to meet Emily Brydon herself, a former World Cup-winning alpine skier and pillar of the Fernie community.
