LETHBRIDGE, AB – The Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation announcing Tuesday (Apr. 13) that the 25th annual Val Matteotti Italian Open golf tournament has been cancelled, due to on-going COVID-19 concerns.

Organizers say it was a challenging decision to cancel for the second year in a row, but community safety continues to be their top priority.

The Foundation says the generous support from sponsors over the years has made this tournament a staple in the effort to support the greatest healthcare needs right across southern Alberta.

To date, the Val Matteotti Italian Open has raised $1.6-million, which has stayed in Lethbridge to benefit the Chinook Regional Hospital in a number of ways.

The CRH Foundation says it’s still accepting donations this year in support of the golf tournament.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
