FORE! The Chamber
The NWT Chamber’s golf tournament — now our largest fundraiser — is back on track to be annual again after a pandemic pause.
To ensure the August 18 event at the Yellowknife Golf Club sets itself up for success, we are relying on the generosity of our returning sponsors and are also eager to make some new partnerships as well.
This year’s event is called FORE! The Chamber as net proceeds from sponsorships and entry fees in our 50th anniversary event will support our non-profit’s activities, as our budget did take a hit during the pandemic.
A percentage of our net revenue will also be donated to Skills Canada NWT, a non-profit, nationally affiliated organization with a mission to engage Northwest Territories youth in the exploration of skilled trade and technology careers.
For our return to the summer golf tournament calendar, we are helping the historic Yellowknife Golf Club celebrate its 75th year, but we will travel to other golf courses in the territory in years to come.
Our mandate is to promote and create business opportunities across the territory, foster enterprise development, and serve as a channel for professional business relationships between members, all level of governments and business organizations.
Please see the attached Sponsorship Opportunity Sheet and get back to Executive Director James O’Connor with your selection. Information about the tournament will be available at nwtchamber.com with team registrations opening May 12.
And remember, a local rule of the Yellowknife Golf Club states:
No penalty when ball is taken by a raven!
