There's still time to register to play a fun round of golf while supporting the Veterans Food Bank Alberta and Veteran Hunters.

The "Feeding the Body, Healing the Mind" best ball tourney is being held on July 17 at the pristine Water Valley Golf Club. 

Todd Hisey, Veterans Hunters founder and executive director, says the two nonprofits are working together to make it the most fun you'll have on the golf course.

"A lot of the programs the Veterans Food Bank of Alberta do feed the body, and at Veteran Hunters, we're all about healing the mind, so the two go hand-in-hand."

The goal is to raise $40,000 and collect a truck load of nonperishable food.

He says if you're unable to golf, there are other ways to contribute.

"There's an opportunity to participate in the 50/50 draw that we're having. There's also a trigger that was donated by Costco as well as a football beer cooler that's full of beers from Calgary breweries that you can buy a raffle ticket on."

Plus, you could win either a Traeger Smoker or foosball patio cooler in another raffle. Enter here.

Currently, bids are being accepted for a safari, fly fishing experience and some great merchandise in a silent auction. The link is here.  

Tournament sponsorship packages are also available. Check here for details.

He says the need for food banks has never been greater, and that's especially the case with veterans.

"We're seeing about two-thirds of Canada's veterans living below the poverty line. So, we're also looking to fill a pickup truck worth of food. If you're participating in the tournament, it would be great if you can bring some food and nonperishable items and throw them in the box of our truck."

It's not the first time they have teamed up with the Veterans Food Bank. In cooperation with the Alberta government and landowners, they were able to reduce elk herds in the Cochrane area last year and donate the meat to the Veterans Food Bank. In Alberta you're able to donate harvest animals that have been government inspected.

"Hopefully we're going to be able to do that again this year. It's just a great opportunity for us to give back to the community and look after each other."
