FORE! Calgary Volunteers Needed Aug 20

Calgary Volunteers Needed FORE Golf Tournament


Are your raffle ticket selling skills up to PAR?

Then we have just the job for you! And even if they’re a bit rough, don’t worry…they’ll be out of the bunker and back on the green after volunteering a shift at the Calgary Police Association Golf Tourney on Aug 20th!

All proceeds from this year’s raffle ticket sales go to the John Petropolous Memorial Fund (JPMF), a Calgary charity started after the 2000 death of Const. John Petropoulos of the Calgary Police Service. The JPMF raises public awareness about why and how to ensure workplaces are safe for everyone, including first responders.

I was married to John and am Chair of the JPMF. John loved golfing AND being a police officer, so this is a great fundraising fit for the JPMF!
