Peach­land golf tour­na­ment

The Daily Courier - - WESTSIDE WEEKLY -

Golf with friends or make some new ones on the course at the Peach­land Lions’ 19th An­nual Char­ity Golf Tour­na­ment April 30 at the Sum­mer­land Golf and Coun­try Club.

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 dtrouleau@shaw.ca 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.

The event has raised more than $50,000 which has as­sisted in pro­vid­ing free overnight sum­mer camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for chil­dren and teens with dis­abil­i­ties in Bri­tish Columbia. To get your ticket, con­tact Gary Stephens by email at garys­tephens@hot­mail.com or call 250-768-5258.
