Four-day-old Adilynn, the newborn daughter of Justin and Kim Clews, became Victoria Hospice’s youngest fundraiser in its history.
The tiny tot attended a golf tournament organized by her parents that raised more than $16,000.
The annual Clews Charity Golf Tournament was held at Uplands Golf Club on Sept. 24. Uplands Golf Club Assistant Professional Clews and his wife Kim have organized the tournament for the past three years. Born almost three weeks early, it seems clear that Adilynn didn’t want to miss the big event and is destined to become an avid golfer like her parents.
A bit bleary-eyed from their disrupted sleep schedule, mom and dad brought Adilynn to greet the golfers for the tee off. She was easily the star of the show but seemed nonplussed by all the fuss.
“It was wonderful to welcome Adilynn into the world at this special event for Victoria Hospice. The Clews Family took the day in stride and we are so thankful for their incredible support. At only four-days-old, Adilynn has already made a big difference for our patients and families,” said Wendy Innes, who manages Victoria Hospice’s community relations and events.
Almost half of Victoria Hospice’s operating funds come from donations.
