8th Annual BVC Golf Tournament

Yesterday, nearly 130 golfers hit the links at River Spirit Golf Club under blue skies and sunshine in support of Bow Valley College students. Since the inaugural golf tournament, together with our generous supporters,  we have been able to raise more than $850,000 in support of the BVC Academic Excellence Endowed Scholarships program. This year was another best-ever effort with a grand total of $164,000 in revenue!
