Tournament announces the opening of Volunteer and Caddie registration and the 2nd annual Canucks for Kids Fund Charity Ball Hockey Classic
(February 19, 2018 – Vancouver, B.C.) – The Freedom 55 Financial Open is set to open the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada season May 31 – June 3rd at Point Grey Golf & Country Club in Vancouver.
The 72-hole tournament kicks off the Mackenzie Tour’s sixth season, where up-and-coming players from over 15 different countries will aim to make the next step Ion the path to the PGA TOUR and earn Web.com Tour status.
In addition to showcasing top up-and-coming players, Mackenzie Tour tournaments aim to make a positive impact in the communities where they play, raising more than $1-million for charity in each of the past two years.
For the third year in a row, the Canucks for Kids Fund will be the Freedom 55 Financial Open’s official charity, and the tournament will once again be incorporating a Canucks for Kids Ball Hockey Classic event to raise both awareness and donations for the charity.
Children between the ages of 8-12 will have the opportunity to participate in a ball hockey game on Sunday June 3rd with Mackenzie Tour golfers, Vancouver Canucks players and alumni and media personalities while raising money for the charity. Sign up is available on www.freedom55financialopen.com
These events cannot happen without the support of our community and this event will be possible due to 250 volunteers and approximately 100 caddies. Registration is open to register to participate at www.freedom55financialopen.com
The full 2018 Mackenzie Tour schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
