Former Olympic hockey player and Winnipeg native Jennifer Botterill will be the official ambassador for the Manitoba Lotteries Drive Fore the Gold Golf Tournament on Thursday, August 4.

Manitoba’s only fundraising golf tournament is in support of local high performance athletes and Olympic hopefuls will be held at Breezy Bend Country Club.

“I know how supportive the community was for me, and I look forward to helping continue and build upon that support for all future Olympians and Paralympians,” Botterill said in a statement.

Jennifer won three gold medals (2002, 2006, 2010) and one silver medal (1998). She is also a five-time world champion, where she was twice named the tournament’s MVP.
