YPCV has a fundraising goal of $10,000 and will make up one of 10 teams under the JET-FM umbrella, which will build homes with Habitat for Humanity in the Comox Valley.

President of YPCV Joe Renooy commented, “I can’t think of a better way to raise money for such a fantastic charity. Habitat for Humanity is such a big part of the Comox Valley and they do amazing things for area residents. Playing golf for charity, it can’t get any better than this.”

The YPCV golf team are looking for sponsorship from individuals and local businesses to help them raise money for the YPCV Piercy build in the fall. Pledges can be on a per-hole basis or a set amount for the day.

Each golfer will personally contribute $5 for every birdie or $10 for every eagle made by playing a modified Texas scramble format in two-man teams.

To support the YPCV team, they are accepting donations in a number of formats, online, over the phone or in person. Donations can be made through a link on their website at www.YPCV.ca, phone donations can be accepted by calling Habitat directly at 250-334-3784, or donors can see any of the YPCV golf team members. All proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity aims to eliminate the need for low-income families to live in substandard housing by creating stability through affordable home ownership.

The Young Professionals of Comox Valley (YPCV) aims to promote social interaction and assist in the professional development of the Comox Valley’s future leaders. The group is open to business professionals, employees and entrepreneurs under the age of 40 who live or work in the Comox Valley.
