Only few spots left for charity golf tourney

United Way to benefit from Kelowna Golf and Country Club charity golf tournament.

A committee of community-minded individuals has selected the United Way as the beneficiary of this year’s Kelowna Golf and Country Club charity golf tournament.

Tournament co-chair John Weisbeck said there was a large selection of non-profit groups to select from as tournament beneficiary this year.

“The (organizing) committee was pleased to unanimously award the United Way based on their diverse support of many organizations in need throughout the Okanagan Similkameen region. We are very pleased to be working with the United Way and KGCC and we encourage players to register teams soon, before we sell out,” Weisbeck said.

There are still a few spots left in the July 27 tournament, which will include opportunities to win over $100,000 in cash and prizes and the inaugural presentation of the red jackets; Par 3 hole-in-one prizes including opportunities to win $5,000 and $10,000, an Audi and a hot tub from Arctic Spas; a chance to win $10,000 in a putting contest; and a new Honda from Harmony Honda up for grabs in the “drive over the pond” contest.

Golfers will also have a chance to golf with the tournament’s special guest, former National Hockey League player Greg Adams. Players can register online at golftheunitedway.eventbrite.ca.

Local United Way board chairman Bruce Olsen extended a thanks both to the tournament sponsors and players who make this event a success.

“We are looking forward to a great turnout,” Olsen said.
