Sponsors are in place for the July 10 Community Golf Day tournament which is being organized by the Kalamalka Rotary Club and the Vernon Golf and Country Club.

“The community sponsorship support has been excellent,” said Darryl O’Brian, Kal Rotary’s sponsor chairperson.

“The tournament will offer a $10,000 golf cart, a Dodge Ram 1500 pickup and a $10,000 investment package as hole in one prizes.  Sponsors are First Choice Golf, Vernon Dodge and Greg McKinnon/Sunlife.”

Sladen Moore Chartered Accountants is sponsoring the golf carts and Sunshine Autographics is providing signage while Kiss FM and The Morning Star are the media sponsors.

Individual hole sponsors include Nixon Wenger, O’Callaghan Bilodeau, the Paddock Tack and Togs, Prospera Credit Union, Clarke Robinson, Vernon Dodge, Edward Jones/Bruce Shepherd, Candeloro/May Wealth Management, KPMG, Davidson Lawyers, Lett Agar, Royal LePage, National Bank Financial, Romei Plummer and Andy Erickson/Investors Group.

A small number of sponsorships are still available and include a complimentary round of golf for a foursome.  Further information is available from O’Brian at 250-545-1555.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the maternal child department in VJH’s new patient care tower.

A round of golf is $50 and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation will issue tax receipts for all donations.

“We expect a full day of golf July 10,” said Bruce Shepherd, an event organizer. “We once again want to thank the golf club for their generous donation of the golf course for the day.”

Early tee time booking is recommended. Golfers can book for the event by calling 250-542-9126 or e-mailing shannon@vernongolf.com.
