A fund focused on helping local female athletes make their dreams a reality is getting a boost.
Just in time for Christmas, Deerhurst presented a cheque for $5,000 to Muskoka Community Foundation, which will be put into Dara’s Fund. The fund was created in partnership with Huntsville’s Olympic athlete Dara Howell as a way to help Muskoka’s up and coming female athletes with training and equipment costs.
The money was raised during the 2nd run of the Deerhurst Annual Cottage Country Cup golf tournament held over the summer. The resort is already planning for the next run of the tournament kicking off on August 18th in the New Year.
