There’s a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Come early and put your skills to the test in the putting contest from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Entry fee costs $110, which includes 18 holes of golf and cart followed by dinner. Tickets for dinner guests are $35. The tournament is best ball format.
“It’s a fun event and by playing that way you get people that aren’t normally golfers and are shy to come out,” said Gary Stephens, tournament chair.
The Lions will be running a barbecue at the 10th tee. There will be door prizes and a silent auction table. The tournament will also be the last chance for people to buy tickets for the Peachland Lions’ rafÁe for two tickets anywhere WestJet Áies. RafÁe tickets cost $10 for three tickets. If you can’t make it to the tournament but would like to buy rafÁe tickets, contact Dan Rouleau by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 250-767-9034.
Money raised from the rafÁe goes toward supporting Camp WinÀeld, one of three Easter Seals camps in the province operated by the British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.
The camp, located 21 kilometres outside Kelowna, provides accessible facilities and programs for disabled children who would be prevented from full participation at other camps. It offers a fully accessible swimming pool, climbing walls, giant team swing, and in ground trampoline. More than 700 children attend the camps each summer and challenge each other and challenge themselves in a camping community that embraces diversity. Rick Harker, the manager at Camp WinÀeld, will make a presentation at the tournament dinner.
Proceeds from the tournament go toward supporting Camp WinÀeld and Peachland youth.
