Golf club owner and Play Fore Hope organizer Jacqui Shepherd  has teed it up with her own team every year since this tournament began in 2006. Also pictured from left are Charlotte Janes, Courtney MacIntosh, Jacqui Shepherd and Krista Wright. (Lynn Moar) While chef and co-owner Harry Shepherd hit the kitchen, Jacqui Shepherd and her teams hit the links. Harry Shepherd wasn’t the only man working for the cause that day, either. The Men’s Club supported the tournament with donations of prize money and hard work. They mowed and trimmed the week before to help get the course in tip top condition. On the big day they parked cars, manned the refreshment stands and helped with games of skill. Gillian Zinck, senior development officer of The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, has come to the tournament every year. This year she manned the tee box on Hole #3 where for a loonie you got to try your hand at hitting a pink rubber duckie on the fairway. “The fact that both the husband and wife here have taken the reins (of the tournament) is different. Jacqui’s always been very involved in it and has played in it every year. This year she’s the lead coordinator for the event. Her husband is always inside cooking, which is unique. Not only are they hosting, but they own the course. There’s not a lot of tournaments that we have where the owners are as involved as they are. “Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work and raise our families-or whether we do these things at all.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz The Annapolis Royal Golf Club has only 18 women members. But since 2006 those women have spearheaded an event that will have raised over $100,000 by the end of this year’s event on Aug. 25. The Play Fore Hope fundraiser is a team scramble event that sees anywhere up to 44 teams of four women take to the course in their effort to eradicate breast cancer.

Jacqui Sheperd, co-owner of the course, has been playing in the event since the beginning. For the last three years, Shepard has headed the event’s organizing committee. In addition to the Annapolis Royal members who have worked and played in every event, “We have returning players who are very supportive,” said Shepard. “Some from the French shore have been here every year, rain or shine.” In 2009 players faced torrential rain and high winds to complete the tournament — but they did so with smiles and high spirits. It is important to note that the Ladies of Annapolis Royal Golf Club are not alone in their endeavours. Club co-owner Harry Shepherd is also the restaurant’s chef, working for days in advance to make sure everything is perfect for the ladies when they reach the Royal Eatery Annapolis Royal Golf Club has an exceptionally small and intimate membership. Everyone chips in. So it is the gentlemen members who mow the fairways and greens. On tournament day they act as valets, supervise the putting and hole in one games, drive the beverage cart, and cook and hand out hot dogs to competitors. Play Fore Hope is one of 10 similar tournaments held in Nova Scotia each year. “This tournament is the third largest Nova Scotia golf event in support of CBCF,” states Gillian Zink, senior development officer of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  Zink has attended the Annapolis Royal event every year. “I’m from rural Nova Scotia myself and I know the power of a community, no matter the size, when they commit to a cause. Anything and everything is possible with community support.” Attending “allows attendees to put a face to the foundation and allows me to personally thank everyone for their support. You can’t accept people’s hard earned money and not be there to say thank you — I can’t operate like that, it’s not the way that I was brought up,” said Zink. In 2015 Annapolis Royal will receive the Platinum Tee Award. It is presented to golf events that have contributed over $100,000 or more to CBCF. “In the history of the golf program, there have only been two golf events that have received this award so it’s pretty special to reach this goal,” said Zink.
