DC Devun Walsh Charity Classic at Quilchena Golf Club – August 2, 2013
KNOWSHOW, Canada’s Premiere Lifestyle Tradeshow, is pleased to announce the second annual DC Devun Walsh Charity Classic (DWCC) taking place on Friday, August 2, 2013 at Quilchena Golf Club in Richmond – all to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.
The DWCC was founded in 2012 when professional snowboarder, Devun Walsh, partnered with the annual KNOWSHOW Golf Tournament for the purpose of creating awareness and raising funds for cancer research and treatment.
The inaugural tournament put Walsh’s off season passion for golf to good work and thanks to his longtime supporters and many generous parties that contributed, the DWCC surpassed their fundraising goal of $10,000. This year they expect to welcome 100 golfers to help reach the new target fundraising goal of $20,000, which will again be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
“I have come to love the game of golf over the last ten years and have always dreamed about having my own tournament. Teaming up with KNOWSHOW and with the support of all my sponsors it has become a reality. After losing my dad to cancer I have always wanted to ﬁnd a way to contribute to this charity and I’m ﬁnally getting a great chance.” says Walsh.
Along side DC Shoes, the tournament is presented by the KNOWSHOW and eminent Canadian snowboard retailer, The Source. The tournament looks to bring together Walsh’s network of professional snowboard and action sports colleagues and local tastemakers for a day of golf, laughs and fundraising for a fantastic cause.
The $225 fee per golfer includes 18 holes of golf with motorized cart, lunch and refreshments on the course, a banquet supper, tee gift, range access and great prizing. Each entry also includes a charitable donation to the Canadian Cancer Society. Go Pro will once again host a Big Break style “Break the Glass” competition, and the tournament features a $20,000 Hole in one sponsored by Onni Group. More Sponsors are coming on board and will be announced as they are signed up.
