A couple of local high school students will get some help with their post secondary education thanks to the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce and a bunch of the area's golfers.
The Chamber held their annual fundraising golf tournament last Friday, August 17 at the Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club.
"We had 65 golfers this year for the 23rd annual," reported tournament organizer Marley Henneigh of the Chamber. "We had a theme this year, A Luau on the Links, we had a lot of people in some crazy outfits and lots of our sponsors were going with the luau theme for their give-aways and contests and stuff."
"First place this year went to the team of Brad Peake, John Shoff, Landon Bosch and Nathan Fleming," Henneigh added. "We do have a prize, too, for what we call the most honest team, which was last place; that was the Hiway 9 team actually."
The golf tournament is one of a number of annual events the Drumheller Chamber runs to raise money for various causes.
"For the past few years, we've been taking the proceeds from the Jurassic Classic and putting them towards our Business Leaders of Tomorrow scholarship program," outlined Henneigh. "With that, we give two scholarships away to two students from the two local high schools (DVSS & St. Anthony's)."
This year's scholarship winners were Brady Engen and Veronica Felisilda, who each received $1,000 towards their post secondary schooling. They're still tallying up the final numbers, but Henneigh says they made enough to cover next year's Business Leaders of Tomorrow scholarships.
