Annual Val Matteotti Italian Open

The 26th Annual Val Matteotti Italian Open was a swinging success!

On August 9th, golfers, sponsors, volunteers and supporters joined the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation at the Lethbridge Country Club for the 26th Annual Val Matteotti Italian Open. It was a wonderful day of golf, prizes and great Italian food—all in support of a great cause.
 
Named after prominent philanthropists Val and Flora Matteotti, the event is known as one of the most distinguished and one-of-a-kind golf tournaments in Southern Alberta. Over the past 26 years, the annual golf tournament has raised a total of about $1.7 million, which will fund life-saving healthcare and the greatest needs of the Chinook Regional Hospital.
 
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the incredible donors, sponsors, golfers, volunteers, spectators and supporters who helped make the tournament so successful. Together we can make a difference in our community.
 
This unique event will be back in 2024—stay tuned for details!
