Toronto/Chilliwack – In support of the first-ever Everest Ferbey National Pro Am, World Curling Champion and Hall-of-Famer Randy Ferbey will visit the Chilliwack Curling Club as part of a national tour that launched January 12th. Ferbey will visit select Canadian curling clubs to speak with fellow athletes and promote seniors participation in the game.
The Everest Ferbey National Pro Am is the first of it’s kind and open to senior curlers of all skill levels, at all CCA curling centers. Participants are eligible for monthly prizes and can enter to win the national grand-prize, a VIP all-expenses paid trip to the 2015 Everest Canadian Seniors in Edmonton and a chance to play against Ferbey in a Pro Am at the event.
Ferbey will be in Chilliwack to discuss the Pro Am with local senior curlers on Wednesday January 14th at the Chilliwack Curling Club.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to be in Chilliwack and meet with fellow senior curlers and promote our sport,” said Randy Ferbey. “Working alongside Everest and Chilliwack curling club to bring the first Everest Ferbey National Pro Am to life has been both an honour and a lot of fun.”
The Everest Ferbey National Pro Am launched in November in support of Everest Funeral Planning and Concierge Service’s first year as title sponsor of the Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships and is designed to promote senior participation in the sport.
“As a leader and a legend in curling around the world, Randy was the perfect partner for Everest as we work to grow seniors curling across Canada,” said Mark Duffey, president and CEO of Everest Funeral and Concierge Services. Adding, “Everest wants to be more than a sponsor of the Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships, we want to be a partner in seniors’ curling in Canada and engaging seniors around the country to increase interest in the sport, and the Championships is important for us. Randy is integral to making that happen”
The Pro Am is scheduled for Saturday March 28 at 12 p.m. at the Thistle Curling Club in Edmonton.
