The “Sicamous Shootout – Weber Franson Golf Classic” supports the BC Cancer Foundation
NHL stars Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators and Cody Franson of the Toronto Maple Leafs are bringing back their “Sicamous Shootout - Weber Franson Golf Classic” for a second year in a row at Hyde Mountain Golf Course in Sicamous, BC.
The inaugural golf classic, held in July of 2012, raised approximately $35,000 in support of the BC Cancer Foundation and flood relief for the Sicamous area. Of the inaugural event, Weber and Franson stated: “we were so thrilled with the amount of support the tournament received. All of the participants and generous sponsors, as well as the volunteers, deserve recognition for braving the heat in order to raise funds for these causes.”
The second annual Sicamous Shootout is scheduled to take place on Friday, July 12, 2013. “We’re happy they are having us back and that we have this great opportunity to give back to the community and support the BC Cancer Foundation for a second year in a row,” said Weber and Franson.
The main beneficiary of this year’s event, the BC Cancer Foundation, is British Columbia’s largest charitable funder of cancer research in the province, bridging philanthropic support and cancer research breakthroughs.
Celebrity guests at this year’s tournament include Weber and Franson themselves, as well as Carey Price, Justin Schultz, Jerred Smithson, Luke Schenn, Ron Flockhart, and Bob Bourne, among many others.
There are few registration spots that remain available at $350/individual, $700/pair, and $1400/foursome. Registration includes a round of golf, breakfast, a plated dinner, and a mix n’ mingle with the celebrity guests. Both a live and silent auction will take place at the event, with numerous offerings of sports memorabilia and travel packages.
