The Wine, Women and Woods – Tee Off For the Cure Tournament will once again bring community-spirited women together to help raise funds for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
This year’s goal is to raise funds toward digitizing the mammography suite.
Over the past 10 years, $596,000 has been raised and all of it has stayed in the North Okanagan. This is achieved through co-operation with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and, of course, the generosity of golfers and online donations.
This year boasts a few dramatic changes. The first is the new location. After 10 successful years at the Vernon Golf and Country Club, the committee decided to shake things up and have moved to Predator Ridge Golf Resort.
The second change is the time and date of the event. This year the event will open on Sept. 28 for the wine and appetizer reception with live and silent auction.
Golf will be played Sept. 29 with cart decoration commencing at 8:30 a.m. Tee-off is 10:30 a.m. on the Predator course.
Returning by popular demand is the live auction of caddies.
“Open your hearts and wallets and help us raise funds for this cause. Caddies bring a special element to the game,” state the organizers.
“Along with this caddy auction there will be other wonderful items to be auctioned off live and through the silent auction. All of these items will be listed online at www.winewomenandwoods.com.”
Registration is now open online.
“The theme for this year is I am woman – hear me roar. So participants are asked to have some fun while designing costumes around the theme,” state organizers.
