Golfers can swing up some fun for a good cause.

The ninth annual women’s only Home Building Centre Vernon Charity Golf Tournament runs June 5 at the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club.

“All proceeds go to the North Okanagan Hospice Society,” said Daphne Coleman, Home Building Centre office administrator. “It’s a great organization and what they do for people is phenomenal.”

The entry fee is $100 per person and registration forms are available at the 27th Street store.

“It includes golf and dinner,” said Coleman.

“Last year, we had 120 participants and we are maxed out at 144. We already have registrations coming in.”

Besides the golfing, there will be fun activities at each of the nine holes.

“There will be games off to the side. They could be bean bag toss,” said Coleman.

“We are trying to make it fun and entertaining.”

There will also be a silent auction and a live auction with items donated by local businesses.

“Vernon is great for supporting the tournament,” said Coleman.

Pre-registration will take place at Home Building Centre June 4.
