Golf tournament supports youth

NANAIMO – Vancouver Island Real Estate Board raised more than $6,000 for KidSport B.C.

The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board raised more than $6,000 for KidSport B.C., during its 2014 President’s Cup Golf Tournament.

Gary Gray, past president, presented a cheque for $6,073 to Ron Doetzel, KidSport B.C. volunteer and representative for the organization’s Port Alberni chapter. The money raised will be distributed among four of KidSport’s five Vancouver Island affiliates.

Doetzel emphasized how important donations are to the organization.

“Too often, families are unable to afford the costs of sport registration fees. As a result, kids are left on the sidelines,” said Doetzel. “KidSport helps by issuing grants to cover the cost of registration fees for a season of sport.”

KidSport is a community-based sport-funding program to help eliminate financial barriers that prevent children from playing organized sports.
