Join us at the 38th Annual UFV Employee Fundraising Golf Tournament. Make a difference, have fun and support students at UFV!
Saturday, May 12 at Cultus Lake Golf Course, Cultus Lake. First tee time starts at 9 am.
Together we raised $5,368 last year for students facing sudden and unexpected financial burdens. Please help us raise $7,000 this year and have fun doing it!
Registration is $60 per person and includes golf, lunch and a free bucket of range balls to warm up. This will be a team event using a Texas Scramble format with a modified shotgun start. Tee times will begin at 9 am with lunch following your round. Registration is limited to the first 120 golfers, so be sure to register early!
The tournament is open to all UFV staff, faculty, administrators, retirees, and their guests. Encourage your colleagues to register; challenge those in another department to put in a foursome – the more the merrier.
Tickets for mulligans and putting and chipping contests are available to purchase online when you register or onsite. We will also have a 50/50 draw, prizes, and more. The beverage cart will be out on the course again this year for those players who work up a thirst. And last but not least – trophies and bragging rights are on the line for the winning foursome. Who will it be this year?
A limited number of Power carts are available for rental at $28 + GST each. Pull carts are also available to rent for $4.50 + GST each. Reserve yours by calling Cultus Lake Golf Club directly at 1-877-858-FORE (3673).
Register today online or by dropping off your payment to the Advancement office (B310 – Abbotsford).
Put together a team — have fun, win prizes, and help students!

How your participation helps students:
“I am a recent recipient of a bursary from the University of the Fraser Valley. I have a permanent disability, as I was diagnosed with Bipolar Affective Disorder 16 years ago. Needless to say my life has been a roller coaster since my diagnosis.
2 years ago my mental health team and I decided that the job that I had held for 28 years was no longer conducive to my mental or physical health. It was then that I decided to return to school and to live out my dream of working in the social work field. I feel this is a natural fit for me. Some of the hard lessons that I have been through, having a mental illness and being a former drug addict and alcoholic, will really help me to relate to persons going through the same struggles.
None of this would be possible without help from the university in the form of grants and bursaries. The bursary that I received allowed me to keep going to school in this summer semester. This bursary has given me enough money to live on for two months and not lose my apartment.
It has been 31 years since I have been to school and the adjustment has been very difficult. But with the help of tremendously generous people like you, the transition has been easier both mentally and monetarily. I don’t know what the future holds for me, I only know that I will keep going to school until I have fulfilled my dream. I thank each and every one of you for your support.”
