Courtnall Classic attracts celebrity roster

Break out the golf clubs and roll out the red carpet.

The goal of the third Courtnall Celebrity Classic fundraiser is to raise $4 million in support of mental health care equipment in the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s new patient care centre.

Geoff, Russ – both former NHL players – and their brother Bruce Courtnall have a legacy of helping. The brothers funded the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s Archie Courtnall Centre for emergency psychiatric care – named for their father who committed suicide in 1978 – through their 2003 and 2004 tournament.

This year’s event is drawing some big names, such as Hockey Night in Canada host Ron MacLean, TV star Pamela Anderson, golf professional Ian Leggatt and musician Don Felder, among others.

“When it comes to celeb guests, residents of Victoria just might, for one weekend, think they’ve arrived on a Hollywood movie set,” Bruce said in a statement.

The three-day event includes a fundraising dinner, live and silent auctions, a ticketed dance party and golf tournament.

The event happens July 22 to 24 at the Victoria Golf Club, Victoria Conference Centre and Fairmont Empress Hotel. For details, please visit www.courtnallclassic.org.
