Day of Golf is back! We are excited to announce that we will tee off for a good cause on August 12!
The event will take place as the Derrick Golf & Winter Club with a shotgun start at 1pm. Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30am.
For over 30 years we have supported cancer research in Alberta – donating thousands of dollars to ensure important research has the chance to change people’s lives.
Money raised will be going to Dr. Chu, a doctor who is working on an incredible cancer treatment known as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy works by utilizing NK cells from healthy people and injecting them into cancer patients so that these cells can be the ones to fight off the cancerous cells. This way, the treatment does not rely on the health of the patient, whose body has already been through so much.
NK cells can be gathered through regular blood donations as they are collected along with everything else but are not normally used.

We would appreciate your support.
