Golfers gather to raise money to support the Kelowna shelter during BCSPCA Annual Tournament.

Animal lovers tee’d-off last Friday in Kelowna for the 12th year in a row – to help raise money for the neglected, unwanted and abused pets in the community.

Taking place at Sunset Ranch Golf course, business owners, philanthropists and those who love to cuddle creatures gathered to play 18 holes, all in support of the Kelowna BC SPCA.

Sponsors from Boyd Autobody, to Kal-Tire, to Lynx Brand fencing returned after several years of helping out the non-profit’s event for a fun day in the sun.

Following a day on the course, golfers were treated to a dinner and a live-auction where the money raised will stay in Kelowna to help the local shelter care for animals and find them forever homes.
