Golf savings galore

BC Lung Association fundraiser

The BC Lung Association is encouraging golf lovers province-wide to pick up a Golf Savings Book.

For $35, this fundraising book offers great deals and discounts on golf courses across BC and Washington State, all while supporting the BC Lung Association and the one in five British Columbians living with lung disease.

“The sun is out and flowers are blooming – so it’s a great time to start thinking about golf and our Golf Savings Book,” says Kathy Wylie, BC Lung Association Volunteer Director for Vernon. “For less than the cost of one round of golf, our Golf Savings Book will give you access to hundreds of dollars of savings that you can use throughout the year.

“Most of us know someone with a breathing problem. The fact is one in five British Columbians live with a mild to severe respiratory condition,” continued Wylie. “Buying this book is a great way to support them and the work the BC Lung Association does, all while enjoying great savings on your golf game.”

The Golf Savings Book is an annual BC Lung Association fundraiser and supports ground-breaking lung research, advocacy, and education.

For more information on the courses and discounts or to purchase a book, please visit golfandsave.ca or call the BC Lung Association at 1-800-665-LUNG (5864).
