The fourth annual Chicks With Sticks golf tournament may have switched up its model, but the fundraising efforts hit a record-breaking number, despite the pandemic.

The fundraiser donated $36,000 to Foundry Kelowna in support to youth mental health.

“We broke our record of last year of $26,100 and even surpassed our goal of $30,000, which was set before COVID,” Carla Lundman said in a press release.

The 172 female golfers played the tournament at Black Mountain Golf Club on July 20.

Lundman credits the record-breaking year to the help of their title sponsor, Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union and Urban Systems Foundation.

Foundry is an integrated youth and family centre that provides services that address the primary care, mental health, substance use, counselling and social service needs of youth aged 12 to 24 and their families.
