Ready to Jazz it up for the Cure

Wine, Women and Woods

Home Building Centre Vernon is building support for a future without breast cancer by joining forces with Wine, Women and Woods.

Come in to the store and put your $5 down for a ticket on a $3,000 gift card which can be used toward any purchase in the store. It doesn’t have to be spent all at one time either.  The draw is on Sept. 10 at the Tee Off for the Cure.  As well, HBC has contributed a $1,200 flooring package for the auction – so think about your renovations and come to bid at Jazz It Up for the Cure.

Although September seems a long way off, the Wine, Women and Woods Tee Off for the Cure is gaining momentum again this year. Jazz It Up for the Cure features the Neil Fraser Ensemble at the Vernon Golf and Country Club on Sept. 9 beginning at 6 p.m. Even if you are not a golfer, there is no reason to miss out on good music, fine wine and appetizers, as well as the silent and live auctions. Many local companies sponsor the tournament and provide amazing auction items to bid on. Tickets for the evening are $25, available through the Vernon Golf and Country Club or Brenda Hala Photography.

The tournament itself is held Sept. 10 with a shot-gun start at 1 p.m. There is still room for a few more teams, so get your friends together and come have some fun.

This year the tournament is focused on the purchase of an EnCor Breast Biopsy system which complements the Biovision machine bought last year through the tournament as well as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation- BC/Yukon Region and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. This year’s fundraising goal is $85,000.
