Van’t Foort Memorial Golf to tee off


Organizers are busy planning another fun-filled event to mark their seventh year hosting the Scott Van’t Foort Memorial Golf Tournament and dinner.  

Scott was a popular and kind-hearted individual who was an inspiration to others. 

“In September 2010, in connection with Free The Children, a primary school was built in Kenya with the help of our generous community members,” says Amanda Ball, a member of the organizing committee.  “This year, we continue to support the Scott Van’t Foort Memorial School through maintenance funds (school supplies, teacher salary, etc.,) and will also provide our regular donation to Scott’s former high school, Seaway D.H.S., for their graduation.” 

New this year will be a special donation to a project being completed with The Stephen Lewis Foundation.

“We will contribute funds for the completion of a Maternity Ward in Uganda,” says Ball.  

This project is being spearheaded by Morrisburg native Christopher Marshall who was one of Scott’s best friends.  Marshall was recently in Uganda where he volunteered at St. Francis Health Care Services, a locally run HIV clinic where the Maternity Ward is being built.  

“As you can see, we use all funds raised to make as much of a difference as possible – both locally and as global citizens,” says Ball. “We hope that you will mark August 25th 2012, in your calendar.”  

“This is the day that our friends and supporters will take to the links at Nationview Golf Course for the 7th Annual Scott Van’t Foort Memorial Golf Tournament.”  

The Golf Tournament will kick off at noon with a four-person scramble followed by a chicken dinner.  

The event is promising to be much more than just golf: lots of fun games, a Big Ball Drop sponsored by Lloyd McMillan Equipment, a Dunk Tank and a Live Auction!

In a show of support the community is invited to:

•Participate in the tournament and/or dinner

•Donate a prize for the prize table/live auction.  

•Sponsor a hole.  

•Make a cash contribution.
