Room open in golf tourney

There is still time to dig out your golf clubs and support a worthwhile cause.

The North Okanagan Community Life Society will hold its 20th annual Charity Golf Classic Thursday and Friday at the Vernon Golf and Country Club.

“There are still spaces left for this fun event,” said Garry Molitwenik, executive director.

Funds raised will go towards programs that support developmentally disabled adults.

There is room for 144 golfers and there is a chance to win more than $100,000 in prizes for teams and individuals.

The Classic gets underway Thursday with a team draw, barbecue and caddy auction.

Caddies include MLA Eric Foster, Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert, Funtastic executive director Jim McEwan, deputy fire chief Lawrie Skolrood, B.C. Winter Games chairperson Akbal Mund, Klaudia  Ceglarz from CHBC and representatives from The Morning Star and Kiss FM.

Golf action gets underway Friday at 12:30 p.m., followed by a live auction, dinner, awards and a video presentation.

Registration for the Classic is $200 (includes all meals, activities and a golf cart for every two golfers). A tax receipt for $70 will be issued.

“We look forward to another successful Charity Golf Classic,” said Molitwenik.
