Capitals Forward Eric Fehr will be hitting the links for a good cause


NHL stars and Winkler natives Eric Fehr and Dustin Penner will once again be on hand for the Winkler Pro Am and Cancer Care fundraiser at the Winkler Golf Club tomorrow. The 2nd annual event raised just over $12,200 last year for the Boundary Trails Health Centre Cancer Unit.

Fehr, who is a restricted free agent with the Washington Capitals says he loves coming back home for this event. Fehr talks with CKMW Sports Director Matt Friesen about the event.

CPGA Professional Greg Hesom says 116 golfers including 29 professionals from across the province will be in the city tomorrow.
They are hoping to raise around $10,000 this year.
