Evergreen is hosting its third annual fundraising event to help eradicate cancer and enhance the lives of people living with cancer.
Donations are made through and to the Canadian Cancer Society. Direct donations can be made both on the Evergreen website and the Canadian Cancer Society page http://convio.cancer.ca/goto/evergreen
As well as running a tournament for men, women and juniors, for the second year running Evergreen is also proud to be hosting a professional women’s tournament featuring 4 of the world’s top women’s squash pros.
This year we are looking forward to 2 returning players and 2 new faces.
Rachel Grinham #13 — former World #1
Samantha Cornett #31 — current Canadian #1
Donna Urquhart #35
Deon Saffery #44
The men’s, women’s and juniors tournament takes place 7th January to 11th January, 2014, and provides a great start to the new year. Entry includes 3 matches guaranteed, food and beverage tickets and entry to Saturday pub night at Capilano Rugby Club.
The pros will play in a round robin format. Two games will take place on Thursday, Friday night and Saturday afternoon, and the Final between the top two players will take place on Sunday afternoon.
This event began in support of Evergreen’s friend and colleague Paul Marley who was diagnosed with Cancer in 2011, Paul sadly passed away in 2014. In October 2012 the club also suffered the terrible loss of a 10 year old junior to Cancer. This event honours the brave members of our community touched by cancer who are an inspiration to us all. Evergreen Squashes Cancer helps to invest in life-saving research, compassionate support programs like the volunteer driver program that helps people get to treatment-related appointments, and innovative cancer prevention initiatives. Evergreen shows people touched by cancer that they are not alone.
If you can help the club in this great cause, please let Phil Arthur, Dave Fenn or Tony Hemy know as your help would be greatly appreciated.
This is a Squash BC sanctioned event.
