STAAL FOUNDATION OPEN, PRESENTED BY TBAYTEL, ORGANIZERS READY FOR BIG WEEK

 

 

JULY 5, 2018 THUNDER BAY — Organizers of the Staal Foundation Open say they are ready  to  go with less than  4 days before the Monday Opening Ceremonies and Fountain Tire Summer Classic road hockey game.

“Everyone is busy putting the finishing touches and addressing the details,” says Tournament Director, Ken Boshcoff. “We feel very good about the site, the competition and the special events that have been organized.”

Monday has been a big day in recent years and the expectation is the same for 2018. The official opening and epic road hockey game are followed by the Celebrity Pro Am in the afternoon.

The RBC Women’s Day is scheduled for Wednesday, and although tremendously successful in previous years, there are some interesting changes this year.  “We thought perhaps we would change things up just a bit, adding more interesting food choices as well as speakers,” says Chair

of Marketing, Media and Communications, Sean Davies. “Tickets are still available and can be purchased online at www.staalopen.ca/womens-day-2018.

“The RBC Women’s Day event is designed for women to take time for themselves and come together for an

amazing afternoon of relaxation, networking, and good food while giving back to our community,” says Anna Pascuzzo, Chair, RBC Women’s Day. “This year we are focusing on the work/life balance that women continue to struggle with day after day by offering activities to help

 

inspire women all the while making a positive impact on our community that will touch many people’s lives,” says Pascuzzo.

The RBC Women’s Day event is an important part of the PGA Tour, and a significant part of the Staal Foundation Open which has been supporting the tournament’s fundraising efforts since it started back in 2014. Since inception, the RBC Women’s Day has raised a total of

$60,000 with 100% of the proceeds benefiting local charities.

The official competition begins on Thursday and concludes Sunday. Visit the Staal Open website for schedule and ticket details.

Finally, the general public will be able to see some local competitors in play with qualifiers concluded this past weekend.

Local members include Barry Caland,

Walter Keating Jr, Jeremy Kirk, Matthew Simmons. Out of town members include Billy Walthouse and Jamie Sadlowski.
