The Cattlewomen for the Cure is a volunteer, non-profit organization that hosts an annual women’s only golf tournament each year in August. Started in 2006, the intent of the tournament was to bring together ladies involved in the Canadian beef industry to generate donations for a charity as well as to network.
The golf tournament reported another tremendous fundraising effort again this year, raising just over $102,000 for War Amps CHAMPS, the group’s 2015 charity. The Cattlewomen for the Cure also donated $2000 to local charities as part of the tournament prizes.
Each year, the Cattlewomen for the Cure committee choose a charity to donate all proceeds from the tournament. Since the inaugural tournament, with the generous support of our sponsors and golfers, the Cattlewomen for the Cure have raised just over $500,000 for Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Heart & Stroke, MS , Children’s Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald Houses, ALS, The Arthritis Society, STARS, War Amps CHAMP and various local charities.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that 2015 was our final tournament. We cannot thank you enough for your contributions and support over the past 10 years. We are so proud of the tremendous achievements and the support we received for the sponsors, golfers, and industry. It has been a great pleasure to see our industry come together with the ultimate goal of giving to others in need while providing an opportunity for ladies to network.
The website www.cattlewomenforthecure.com will continue to recognize 2015 sponsors and will be up and running until August 2016.
