Giving back to the community through charitable initiatives has always been at the core of GolfBC Group and the Chan family. So, it is no surprise that it was also a main priority when taking on the role of Title Sponsor at the GolfBC Championship; a Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada event held at Gallagher's Canyon in Kelowna every June. Ever since the inaugural event in 2016, the BC Cancer Foundation has been the main charitable beneficiary, a cause we all feel passionate about supporting.

The BC Cancer Foundation, over the last four years of the GolfBC Championship, has received a total of over $500,000.

So, where does this money go?
It goes towards advancing cancer research and enhancing care for patients throughout B.C. Thank you to the BC Cancer Foundation for their kind words and helpful insights:

"The GolfBC Group, GolfBC Championship, and the Chan Family Foundation have made giving back to the community an integral part of their philosophy, and has made – and continues to make – an indelible impact on our community.

On behalf of the BC Cancer Foundation and BC Cancer, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for supporting cancer patients and their families in the community and beyond. Since 2016, GolfBC Group and the GolfBC Championship, with the support of the Chan Family Foundation, have raised over $500,000 for our community, which is enabling BC Cancer to innovate treatment solutions and advance research. From the generosity of members, to clubs like Gallagher’s Canyon Golf Club lending their course for events, we are changing cancer outcomes together.

Funds from the GolfBC Championship have supported the work happening across the province and specifically at BC Cancer - Kelowna, which serves Interior communities and offers patients access to assessment and diagnostic services, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and supportive care.

Some key areas of impact include:

Kelowna PET/CT Scanner:

Hereditary Cancer Program:

We are so fortunate to have this support. By working with community partners like GolfBC Group, and events like the GolfBC Championship, we are confident that together we will change cancer outcomes."

With Gratitude,
BC Cancer Foundation
