The first "Cattlewomen for the Cure" golf tournament was held over the weekend by the Alberta Beef Producers.

The tournament was open to all women of agriculture.

144 golfers took part in the event raising nearly 35 thousand dollars for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Chair, Peggy Checkel says they are thrilled with the outcome of the event.

The Producers have decided to make it an annual event,  benefitting a different charity each year.
