The family of Ed Buck has donated more than $1,900 to Evergreen Acres seniors housing complex.
The money was raised during the third annual Ed Buck Memorial Golf Tournament, which was held this year on Sept. 14 at Lacarya.
“This is the third year we’ve done the tournament and it’s the best year ever,” said Brent Buck, Ed’s son. “Dad loved to play golf, he had a list of organizations that he liked to donate to, and so this seemed like a good way to remember him.”
The first year the money from the tournament went to Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital. The second year’s take was given to the athletic program at Clearwater Secondary School.
Donating this year’s money to Evergreen Acres was particularly appropriate, Brent Buck felt, because his father had spent many years as the chair of the society that oversees the seniors housing complex.
He noted that his mother, Eva Buck, also contributed significantly to the community from behind the scenes.
