New blood looks to revive tourney

Board members and volunteers are needed to re-establish the Special Olympics Charity Golf Spectacular for 2014

A popular event that supports a dedicated group of athletes is looking for an infusion of new blood.

Board members and volunteers are needed to re-establish the Special Olympics Charity Golf Spectacular for 2014.

“All funds raised help more than 100 local people of all ages with an intellectual disability to enjoy more than 14 different sports,” said Iftkhar Ahmed, organizer.

“The effort required to rekindle this fun event should begin today.”

The charity co-ed golf tournament began in 1998 and continued until 2012.

Ahmed’s goal is for the event to become a major  draw again.

“With many years of success, it earned the title of the North Okanagan’s largest participating golf tournment,” he said.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Ahmed at 250-308-4532 or iffy@shawbiz.ca.
