Alex Campbell Conquer Cancer Classic
2020 Alex A. Campbell Conquer Cancer Classic is cancelled due to COVID-19.
When we, as an organizing committee for this year’s event started planning, we could never could have anticipated how different our world is today.
Like many public events, we have been required to cancel our tournament for 2020 and will now be focusing on May 3rd, 2021. While an unfortunate outcome, we are still hoping to provide the Vancouver Island Lodge with some much-needed financial assistance from those who are willing to donate. We are hoping that you will help us in raising the much-needed funds for the Vancouver Island Lodge (VIL), which offers people from outside Victoria a place to stay while undergoing cancer treatment. (A new HVAC system for the Lodge and its 21 rooms is the targeted capital improvement this year and next.)
While our world is a very different place today with Covid-19, at some point in the future, our lives will return normal. No one can say when that will be. While this current struggle with the pandemic will end, the fight against cancer will go on for a very long time with no end in sight. This year, was supposed to be the 33rd annual Conquer Cancer Classic Golf Tournament, played at Bear Mountain, Gorge Vale and Uplands Golf Clubs. Proceeds from that fund support the Vancouver Island Lodge a home away from home for over 2000 cancer patients each year from up-Island. Our charitable proceeds for this tournament over the past 33 years have raised $1,203,000.
You can make your donation directtly to the individual you are supporting or to the Vancouver Island Lodge link below.
