Last year, the PGA Atlantic in partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic initiated PGA Day, an initiative to raise awareness and provide support for the fight against prostate cancer.
Once again, PGA Professionals at golf clubs throughout Atlantic Canada will tee it up in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic.
Five PGA Professionals took an active role participating in PGA Day in 2015. Pat DeCoste, Tanner Gayton, Blehr MacKinley, Andrew Noseworthy and Steve Leblanc raised nearly $5,000.
