Scott Knowles Memorial Golf Tournament set for 2018
In September 2011, Miramichi pharmacist Scott Knowles passed away, but his memory remains alive through an annual golf tournament that carries his name. The 6th Annual Scott Knowles Memorial Golf Tournament will take place on August 10, 2018.
A portion of the revenue generated from the tournament goes to the Scott Knowles Memorial Pharmacy Award, which is presented annually to a graduating pharmacy student returning to work in New Brunswick for an independent pharmacy. Proceeds also go to a Minor sports program in Miramichi. To date beneficiaries of this are 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 Miramichi Junior Curling Program and 2016-2017 Miramichi Junior Golf Program.
With the proceeds from last year’s golf tournament we were able to donate $3500 to the Scott Knowles Bursary at Dalhousie University and $2000 to the Miramichi Curling Club to provide a Junior Curling school which was held during the 2017 student March Break, $2000 to Minor Hockey who purchased house league goalie equipment and $2000 to Minor Ball who purchased a new pitching machine.
The son of Stan and Jean Knowles, Scott passed away in September 2011 at the age of 31. He was the President of the New Brunswick Pharmacists Association. He was also a member of the Rotary Club of Newcastle and was involved in the annual Miramichi Rock ‘n Roll Festival. He liked to bowl and loved the great outdoors where he enjoyed snowmobiling, boating, fishing and golfing.
The Scott Knowles Golf Tournament Committee look forward to the continued success of this very special event. We hope to see you on the green!
