Grandma Lorraine Kimmett was a major supporter of the Lindsay Leigh Memorial Foundation and even with her passing at 94 years old will be making one final donation to the worthy causes it supports.

On Saturday, Aug. 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. a charity garage sale is being held at 22 West Mitford Cr. with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the benefactors of the 15th annual Monumental Tournament of Aces.

"She was one of the major contributors to the foundation, and she lived in Cochrane for 22 years, so she was part of the community for a long time and loved living in her house," says her son Kelly Kimmett. "That was the most important thing to her."

Even after the family gave away many of her possessions acquired during her 94 years, many items remain.

"We want her possessions to go somewhere else and we don't want to throw them away, because she grew up in the depression and the Second War World when everything was always important. You never threw things away. There was always a use for them."

To celebrate the landmark anniversary of the fun-loving Monumental Tournament of Aces, five important community causes will be supported: Big Hill Haven, Frank Wills Hall Memorial Society, Helping Hands Society, Cultivate Cochrane Society, and the Cochrane Indigenous Centre.

Kelly says donating to five causes is modelled after what was done in the fifth year of the tournament.

Established in 2008, the memorial foundation has donated over $3,000,000 to projects and organizations locally and around the world.

Being organized by the Cochrane Rotary Club, this year's tournament is being held on Oct. 1 at The Links of GlenEagles. With holes ranging in distance from 50 to 165 yards and three-pin placements on all but one green, each golfer will have 25 shots to achieve the ultimate in golf... an ace!

Kimmett says the tournament is about 70 per cent full and typically sells out in September.
