The 29th Annual Val Matteotti Italian Open is coming soon!

On August 14th, golfers, sponsors, volunteers and supporters will join the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation at the Lethbridge Country Club for the 29th Annual Val Matteotti Italian Open. It will be wonderful day of golf, prizes and great Italian food—all in support of a great cause.
