CP Women's Open LPGA Tournament

CP Women's Open LPGA Tournament

Be part of Saskatchewan's first ever LPGA Tournament! Crohn's and Colitis Canada has been invited to run a concession tent at the CP Women's Open, taking place at the beautiful Wascana Country Club, and we need volunteers to help! Shifts are available from August 22-August 26 2018. Deadline to sign up is August 14th!

Volunteers will receive a Crohn's and Colitis Canada tshirt and a free day pass to watch the live golf before and after their shift, for any day they take a shift. A meal will be provided for those who volunteer for 4 hours or more. Shifts range from 2.5 hours to 4.5 hours. Taking a shift each day means you can watch golf for free each of those five days.

The tent is 20 x 20 and is located next to washrooms, at the 13th green/17th fairway. New volunteers are welcome to sign up - must be 19 or older to participate. 

Ten percent of proceeds from our tent will be donated to Crohn's and Colitis Canada to help fund research and patient programming. Help us raise awareness in Regina while raising funds at a fantastic event!

You can also register by email at saskatchewan@crohnsandcolitis.ca, please use subject line "CP Women's Open", or by phone by calling the Saskatchewan office at 1-844-664-4420.

  • Families new to Canada are developing these diseases for the first time.
  • Incidence of Crohn’s in Canadian kids under 10 has doubled since 1995.

Although 1 in 150 Canadians lives with inflammatory bowel disease, too few people know or understand this chronic, invisible illness. Help us raise awareness.
