Mad Hatter tournament a new venture for literary society

The Fort St. John Literary Society took a trip down the rabbit hole last weekend with its Mad Hatter Tea Party at Lone Wolf on May 11, the society’s first charity golf tournament.

The number raised wasn’t known at press time, but executive director Jessica Kalman is expecting between $4,000 and $5,000, which will go towards the society’s youth literacy programs. There were 80 players competing in the tournament.

“There was a steep learning curve for us, but it was super fun and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We will keep the tournament going and continue to make it better,” Kalman said.

Kalman said they focused on making the tournament fun and family friendly, and fit everything into the Mad Hatter theme. She dressed up as the Queen of Hearts, and other golfers dressed up as the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and even the Cheshire Cat. A themed dinner followed the tournament.

The Literary Society’s next even is the Retro Run on September 7.
