One would be hard-pressed to think of a cancelled golf tournament that still raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for health care. Yet the inaugural Jayman Rockyview Invitational — MasterBUILT Pro-AM did just that.
Monsoon-like weather and a flooded Darcy Ranch necessitated cancelling of the June 19 tournament. But the show must go on. As is typical of the super folks at Jayman and the Calgary Health Trust, their can-do attitude creates success on myriad levels.
And success, in spite of a non-tournament, was what the event was all about. Scores of golfers still drove out to Darcy Ranch and enjoyed fabulous food, amazing auction items, interactive displays, entertainment, a cigar and scotch tent ... and a few hands of poker. Funds raised ensured world-class health care at the Rockyview General Hospital will continue.
Hosts Jay Westman of Jayman’s and tournament chair Bobby Libin ensured guests were well looked after. Those having a great time included: Rockyview senior operating officer Nancy Guebert; registered nurses Lyndsay Lingard, Maureen McDonald and Lorna Spitzke; CHT board chair Ann McCaig; CHT CEO Jill Olynyk; Flames president and CEO Ken King; community advocate Trent Anderson; committee members Dave Routledge, Marc Staniloff and Dan Silvester; Tao Events’ Perry McGeough; Renoir Management’s Tim Down; brooks & dodd consulting’s Tom Dodd; Hopewell’s Lesley Conway; Rockyview executive director Kathy Schultz; and Rogers Insurance’s Lee Rogers.
