5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament
Friday, September 13, 2013
New Location: Cordova Bay Golf Course www.cordovabaygolf.com
Why an annual charity golf tournament?
The Family Caregivers’ Network Society is a resource center for ordinary people who go to extraordinary lengths to provide care for a family member or friend when they need it. The Society offers education, support and information to help keep family caregivers healthy in their caring roles. It provides a voice for family caregivers in the health care system, and works toward a future where caregivers are valued, recognized and supported as partners in care.
•Over 80% of the care at home is by family caregivers
•70% are trying to balance caring and working
•Many quit their jobs or work fewer hours when care is needed
•The health system does NOT take care of all our needs
•Exhaustion, stress, worry, anger, guilt, loss and love all go together
•Support, education and information lessen the negative impact of caring.
The Golf Tournament is the Society’s one key event to raise money each year. It allows us to extend our reach to over 40,000 families in the CRD and many more in BC. In the first four years we’ve netted over $74,150!
