Twenty five years of Good Guys, Gals and golf are being celebrated.

The North Okanagan Community Life Society’s 25th annual Charity Golf Classic takes place May 6 at the Vernon Golf and Country Club.

“We have decided to recognize all previous Good Guys and Gals of the Year this year,” said Garry Molitwenik, executive director of NOCLS.

The golf classic and caddy auction is a major fundraiser for NOCLS each year, but the focus is always on fun.

On May 5, there is a celebration and reunion of all of the past Good Guys and Gals with champaign and appetizers, the team draw and caddie auction.

“We will share our stories, have a visit and recognize their contribution,” said Molitwenik.

“We have a commitment from our first Good Guy of the Year, Don Kendall, to attend the celebration.”

The four person best ball golf tournament tees off Friday afternoon followed by the awards banquet and dinner.

There is over $100,000 in prizes to be won. Hole-in-one prizes this year are a 2016 car from Vernon Dodge Jeep, $20,000 kitchen package from City Furniture and Dream Easy Kitchen and Bedrooms, $10,000 from Summit Financial, $10,000 from Interior Savings and albatross/double eagle prizes are $10,000 from Marlin Travel and $10,000 from Interior Savings and Matco Financial.

North Okanagan RCMP Supt. Jim McNamara, Vernon fire chief Keith Green, Vernon Vipers head coach Mark Ferner and Mayor Akbal Mund are a few of the caddies that will be auctioned off by auctioneer Kevin Rothwell Thursday night.

The cost of the tournament is $200 per person.
