Players are still needed for the fourth annual Mayors’ Charity Golf Classic.

Four teams and some individual players are still needed for the fourth annual Mayors’ Charity Golf Classic, says the House Village Hotel and Spa, which is organizing the charity event.

The Sept. 7 tournament has raised more than $90,000 to date for local charities. This year, the goal is $40,000.

The primary recipient this year is North Island College with a target to raise $15,000. This money will finalize a commitment to exceed $50,000 for the NIC foundation.

Other recipients are Boomers Legacy fund, the Young Professionals of Comox Valley, the Comox Valley Food Bank and the Salvation Army.

There is something exciting on every hole, from multiple holes in one, prizes up to $70,000, food, beverages and mini-spa OhSpa treatment stations. Golfers get to rub shoulders with mayors, play the championship Crown Isle Golf Course and enjoy a range of fun activities on each hole.

Cost is $175 per player, which includes 18 holes, a cart, range balls, cocktail station dinner, and silent and live auction.

For prize and auction donations or to register to play, call Jill Rushton at 250-703-0202, fax 250-703-0209 or me-mail to
