Par 3 Charity Challenge

Par 3 Charity Challenge, Driven by The Dingwall Group, Raises $160,000 for a New Digital Mobile x-Ray Machine at LWDH!

Special thank you to all the sponsors, participants & volunteers!

2022 marked the 2nd Annual Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation (LWDHF) Par 3 Charity Challenge, driven by the Dingwall Group. Registration was sold out and on July 21, 152 golfers took to the Kenora Golf and Country Club, raising over $162,000 in support of new hospital equipment.

Thanks in large part to Bill Dingwall and the Dingwall Group, the vision of a unique Par 3 event came to fruition, with over $1 million dollars in prizes that were available to win! The driving leadership of the four first-time presenting sponsors; The Standard Insurance, Sierra Construction, Jarnel Contraction and Kenora Chiefs Advisory, set the tone for the day.

The collective effort of fifty-plus sponsors helped to make the day a resounding success! Many thanks for the tremendous show of generosity! The spirit of community and connection was palpable throughout the day, with lots to celebrate as the event raised an incredible $162,787! The Foundation will direct these funds to purchase a new Digital Mobile X-ray Machine for the Diagnostic Imaging Department at LWDH, providing significant advantages to patients and practitioners alike.

“The mobile X-ray machine at the hospital is a vital piece of equipment as it allows medical staff to take images at the patient’s bedside and better support immobile patients. The first portable digital unit was purchased in 2004 and with the expansion of Surgical Services, the demand for portable X-ray imaging has increased and there is a critical need for another, newer unit,” explained a Charge Technologist at the LWDH.

LWDHF wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the Tournament Organizers, along with the countless other volunteers; your tireless efforts, dedication, enthusiasm and support has been extraordinary.
