It's Been a Slice! - Dakota Community Centre 2018 Ice & Slice Charity Golf Tournament

Wednesday, July 11 – Kingswood Golf & Country Club

Over 100 people enjoyed an incredible day as part of the 1st Annual Ice & Slice Charity Golf Tournament; a fundraising event for the construction of the new outdoor Jumpstart Community Rink that will be open to the community and public this winter.

“We felt starting a charity golf tournament was a great fundraising initiative to raise funds for the new upcoming outdoor rink while giving people a chance to socialize with their Dakota community,” says Kevin Hunter, Director of Marketing & Development.

Thankfully Mother Nature cooperated for the most part with sunny skies and only a couple short spurts of rain. 


It was a busy day starting at 10:30 am with a lunch buffet sponsored by Boston Pizza, a 12:00 pm shotgun start for the golf, cocktail hour, and a dinner buffet.

“We were aiming to create a very comfortable, non-competitive atmosphere for the event where people could just come out, relax, and enjoy each other’s company,” says Hunter.

To add to the tournament's excitement were gift bags for each golfer, a 50/50 draw, a silent auction, and prizes to be won.

Michele Augert, Dakota CC’s CEO, says, ”We’re very grateful to all the individuals and businesses who contributed to the tournament through prize donations and sponsorships. Their generosity played a great role in making the event a successful one.”

Hole sponsors included Royal Bank of Canada, Bird Construction, Kahunaverse Sports Group/Home Run, Prophet Business Solutions, MB Building Expo/BOMA, and others. Below is a full list of the event sponsors:
