Deadline nears for Gill memorial golf event

The registration deadline for the John Gill Memorial Golf Tournament is fast approaching.

The annual Gill Memorial event is set for Friday, June 12 but registration for the tourney closes Friday, May 29. This tournament is open to everyone and golfers of all levels. Proceeds of the tournament support bursaries for students in financial need.

John Gill (BA '94) was the driving force behind the original "Birdies for Bursaries" golf tournament, which raised thousands of dollars for
U of L student bursaries. The tournament was renamed the John Gill Memorial Golf Tournament in honour of his passing in November, 2007.

Gill was a good friend of the University of Lethbridge, the Alumni Association and the community. He worked as a lawyer and respected Crown Prosecutor in Lethbridge in addition to raising an active family and serving as the U of L Alumni Association President and volunteering as member of the Board of Governors and Senate.
