Participating in the Special Olympics Charity Golf Spectacular could pay off.

Home Building Centre is sponsoring a hole-in-one contest during the June 22 and 23 event at the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club.

“It gives one talented golfer a chance to win $50,000 – $25,000 in cash and $25,000 in Home Building Centre product,” said John Topping, an organizer.

“Every golfer has a chance to take part.”

The nine-hole, fun tournament raises funds for sports programs for local developmentally disabled residents.

“There are more than 350 golfers registered but there are still places available,” said Topping.

Legendary hockey broadcaster Howie Meeker will make a return appearance at the event this year.

Registration is $90 for a team of four.
