Superhero’s Golf Tournament Saturday to raise funds to help six-year-old’s family

The staff at Bell-E-Acres are hosting a golf tournament this Saturday, Sept. 15 at noon for six-year-old Chase Lamont.

The staff at Bell-E-Acres are hosting a golf tournament this Saturday, Sept. 15 at noon for six-year-old Chase Lamont, who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive and fast-growing type of liver cancer.

Chase is currently at B.C. Children’s Hospital battling the disease.

The tournament is a nine-hole, two-person scramble.

Entry is $15 for adults, $10 for kids 13 and under.

Heartland Toyota has a 2012 Toyota Corolla to give away to whoever gets a hole in one. Prizes will also be awarded to first- and second-place winners, including a helicopter ride for four, courtesy of Highland Helicopters, for first place and two $50 gift certificates from Joey’s Grill for second. Other prizes will also be awarded, and other events include a super-hero costume contest, go-karting, mini-golfing, a horseshoe tournament, men’s and women’s arm wrestling, bocce ball and a live silent auction.  The event will also include live music from Rachel Walker Trio, Jessica Williams, and Nite Hawks.

All proceeds will go directly to the Lamont family. The tournament goes from 9 a.m. until dusk.

Chase has a type of cancer called Hepatoblastoma. The tumour is the size of a cantaloupe, which is attached to both his liver and stomach.

His cousin Kyla Wejr says when Chase is not receiving chemo, he is at the Canuck Place.

“That gives him a bit more freedom,” she says, adding that doctors have recently discovered he also has a blood disease, causing his blood not to clot properly.

She says she thanks the businesses and community for their support.

Those who can’t make it to the tournament but would still like to help can make a donation through an account set up at the Williams Lake and District Credit Union for Chase under Chase Lamont Fundraiser.  Cheques made out to Chase Lamont Fundraiser can also be mailed directly to the Williams Lake and District Credit Union, 139 North Third Ave., Williams Lake, B.C., V2G 2A5.

For more information contact  Wejr at 250-305-4281 or kylawejr@gmail.com.
