Teeing off to remember Kelowna resident

The second annual Rene Bourgault Legacy Golf Tournament takes place this July.

Known for his love of golf and charismatic character, Rene Bourgault was an active part of the Kelowna community who founded the Jaycees annual golf tournament.

Following Bourgualt’s death, JCI Kelowna decided to continue his legacy with grant in his name for a deserving entrepreneur using proceeds from the golf tournament.

Bourgault, supported many events and fundraising initiatives in Kelowna, as well as was considered to be highly involved in the community.

The tournament he created continues on as the 2017 Rene Bourgault Legacy Golf Tournament presented by SYNLawn and will bring together over 140 professionals at the Okanagan Golf Club.

Funds raised will create a grant through Community Futures to provide start-up funding to an outstanding young entrepreneur in our community.

A ticket to the tournament includes a nine-hole Texas scramble tournament on the Bear Course, with carts for each team, a roast beef buffet dinner, raffle and draw prizes.

For all ticket and golfing inquiries please contact liz.dunning13@gmail.com.

A portion of the proceeds will also be used to help fund professional and entrepreneurial development programs for local JCI members as Bourgault was an engaged member of the JCI Kelowna.

The annual golf tournament takes place on July 21, from 2:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
