(Thunder Bay, Ontario) Join family, friends, members of the community, and provincial politicians at the Whitewater Golf Club on Thursday, July 30, 2009.  The event provides a day full of outdoor fun, with proceeds going in equal parts towards bursaries for First Nation students and cancer research.

The Darryl Fox “Penasi” Memorial Fund is dedicated to the memory of the late Lucian Darryl ‘Penasi’ Fox, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while studying Civil Engineering.  This fund will receive half of the proceeds to provide scholarships to First Nation students, specializing in the Engineering and Technology Field.

The Northern Cancer Research Fund will also receive 50% of the proceeds.  This funding will be put to use in Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario to provide quality research and care for patients in the area.

Entries can be individual or in teams of 4.  There is a 36 team limit to the tournament.  Register your team by July 15, 2009 to ensure availability.
