Tournament raises funds for MICA

The mayor's annual golf tournament takes place June 30 at Cedar Ridge

The second annual mayor’s charitable golf tournament will happen June 30 at Cedar Ridge in support of the Mission International Cultural Association.

Mission Mayor Ted Adlem’s competition aims to raise as much money as possible to help with the total cost of hosting a delegation from the district’s sister city, Oyama in Japan. Thirty people will be in Mission from June 28-July 5, and MICA is responsible for organizing activities and programs which foster understanding, and coordinating the hosting of groups visiting the municipality.

A 1 p.m. shotgun start kicks off the event, and the cost is $100 per golfer, which includes a baron of beef dinner and reception, tee time, games and prizes. Attending just the dinner will cost $40 per person, and tournament and hole sponsors are being sought.

To register, or for more information, contact organizer Cory Cassel at 604-832-3130, or send an e-mail to corycassel@yahoo.com.
