For 23 years, the IndoCanLinks Golf Tournament has raised money to build community relationships, while raising valuable funds for health and education. Although its 23rd annual golf tournament, which was scheduled to take place in July of this year, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization was still able to raise a significant amount of funds for Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) Foundation. The funds will be used for the new patient care tower, currently under construction.
IndoCanLinks has been a significant supporter of RIH Foundation, with donations totaling almost $250,000. Previous funds have been used to purchase equipment and sponsor rooms. “What we have achieved was only possible because of our sponsors and players. I would like to thank all of them who have participated over the years. It is an honour for all of us to be able to serve the community,” explained Sukh Gill of IndoCanLinks.
“IndoCanLinks’ donations to the Foundation over the years have been remarkable, and we are extremely grateful for all that they have done. Their contribution to education and healthcare in Kamloops is an excellent example of the type of community support that is needed and appreciated,” praised Heidi Coleman, CEO of RIH Foundation. The annual golf tournament, which has been organized by the same group of volunteers since its inception, attracts players from all over British Columbia. It is hoped that it will be able to continue next summer. The Organizing Committee includes: Ravinder Dhaliwal, Sukhbinder Gill, Surinder Gill, Mike Forbes, Paul Manhas, Nandi Spolia, Larry Phillips, Sukhi Chouhan, Fred Legace, and R.J. Toor.
