In 2015, the Rowlands family partnered and chose Psalm 23 Transition Society as the benefiting charity. Funds raised from this event go directly to helping fund the supportive treatment programs at the Psalm 23 Training Centre.
Keith entered into Psalm 23’s Recover Program back in 2001 and wanted to change his life and be a man of impact and to be a father of integrity to his 4 children.
Keith surrendered and asked the Lord Jesus Christ into his life and accepted the Grace and Forgiveness and this stirred his heart to reach out and care for others.
Keith made many strides in his life and volunteered for Psalm 23 and also worked in the Ministry. Keith left Psalm 23 to pursue his higher education and went to University of the Fraser Valley to achieve his Counselling Degree and work towards his masters.
In 2007, Keith was the first alumnus awarded with Psalm 23’s Courageous Starfish Award. Keith not only displayed the courage to change his life but had such a transformation in being a father and son to his family. Keith also was instrumental to serving community in many facets while coming beside those who were hurting in their addictions and provided encouragement and support throughout his years.
One day while golfing with Founder/Executive Director Marvin Declare at the 108 Golf Course, Keith saw this amazing double rainbow and he asked Marvin to take a picture as he stood under it. After the picture Keith said “We should start a golf tournament to help support the Training Centre that helps so many”.
After Keith passed in 2015, God placed the Memorial Golf Tournament on our hearts and put it in motion. The tournament is held in August of each year.
