VANCOUVER — Coast Hotels is holding its 13th annual golf tournament on July 9 at the Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club in Coquitlam, B.C., with the aim of raising money in memory of a colleague.

“This year we have rebranded the tournament as the Coast Hotels Shuhachi Naito Golf Classic in honour of our very close friend and colleague, Shuhachi (to most of us just Shu) Naito, who passed away last year after a valiant fight with ALS,” said Mark Hope, executive director, brand development at Coast Hotels. “This year, proceeds of the event will go to both ALS, in his memory, as well as the Salvation Army, another charity that Shu felt strongly about supporting.”

Last year’s tournament raised $55,000 for the Salvation Army.

Anyone wishing to attend or support the event as a player, a sponsor or a volunteer, or anyone wishing to help with prizing, can contact Hope at 604 642-4104 or m.hope@coasthotels.com.
