LETHBRIDGE, August 11, 2022 – The Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation (CRHF) hosted the 25th annual Val Matteotti Italian Open at the Lethbridge Country Club on Wednesday, August 10th, 2022.
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 140 golfers reunited to enjoy a great day of golf, Italian food, prizes, and most importantly giving back. Since the event’s inception, more than $1.66 million has been raised for the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation, with all proceeds supporting healthcare services in southern Alberta.
Allan Bartolcic, Executive Director of the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation, described the event as a celebration of sportsmanship and community spirit. “We were thrilled to welcome golfers back to one of southern Alberta’s signature summer events. We are deeply grateful for the continued and steadfast support from our generous donors, sponsors, golfers, staff and volunteers who helped make the 25th anniversary event a resounding success!”

As a palliative care physician, compassion is a core virtue that lies at the heart of Dr. Dionne Walsh’s practice. And, like so many of the physicians at the Chinook Regional Hospital, Dr. Walsh knows all too well that without support in place, compassion can take its toll.
