Williams Lake's Peter Stellato played 162 holes of golf Monday in the lakecity raising more than $6,000 for ALS.

Peter Stellato, head professional at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club, played 162 holes of golf, or nine rounds, Monday in the lakecity.

Stellato was participating in the PGA of BC’s ALS Golf-A-Thon, helping raise money to research a cure for the debilitating disease.

In total, Stellato raised close to $6,000 (with more to come) receiving pledges from a number of people throughout the community.

Stellato said he would like to thank all of the members and people of the community that donated to the cause, and to the people who cheered him on during the day.

“I chose to do this Golf-A-Thon for Mr. Bill Montgomery, and seeing the smile on his face made my day and helped me get through those rounds,” he said.

He added numerous volunteers assisted him in driving the golf cart and getting flags including: Malcolm McGregor, Chris Hicks, Bill and Elsie Montgomery, Phil Elgie, Michelle Palmer, Don Taylor and the ALS Ladies of Williams Lake.
