NORTH BATTLEFORD - It was a special 25th anniversary edition of the Wayne Pruden Memorial Golf Tournament.
The annual fundraiser for the Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation was back after being a virtual event in 2020. It was a great day for golf and there were a number of winners on the day:
The Best Dressed Team award went to the team “Too Much Muscle,” which has been undefeated since being introduced in 2019. Team members are Tracy Voigt, Lori Pruden, Carmen Koehl, Donnica Bernier, Jose Pruden, and Jes Kohut.
The tournament champions were Dr. Matt Pruden’s team, also consisting of team members David Whyte, Mike McMaster, Mark Pattinson, Jordon Hauk, and Riley Higgs.
The Spirit of Giving Award went to Bruce Goodfellow. The award recognizes an individual who represented Wayne Pruden’s conscientious benevolence and generosity and embodies and explemplifies his spirit and love of the community and desire to make it a better place. Goodfellow was a friend of Wayne and golfed in the tournament every year. Dr. Matthew Pruden presented the award to Goodfellow at the banquet.
