Hollyburn Country Club (HCC) of West Vancouver held their Dinks and Drinks MS Charity Tournament September 15 - 17. David Snell (PBC Board Member) was the Tournament Director, while Tim MacVinnie did all the hard work managing the successful tournament (again) - and Mother Nature was kind!
MS Canada was represented by Nadia DiSpirito, Coordinator, Community Fundraising MS BC, and Jan Snell member of Hollyburn. On behalf of MS Canada Nadia said "That’s an amazing total donation that you and your event attendees were able to raise at your Dinks and Drinks MS Charity Tournament, on behalf of the MS cause!! Thank you so much, for raising the $5,000. Your efforts help to shape the present and future of those living with MS. We truly appreciate you taking your passion of pickleball, and creating an opportunity to raise funds for MS."
The end result from the Tournament and onsite donations is that the HCC Pickleball Committee will be donating $5,000 to MS Canada to help them find a cure for this disease. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. Currently there are over 90,000 people living with MS, with approximately 12 diagnosed every day. Other facts of note:
