Boys and Girls Club fundraising golf tourney May 29

Everyone invited for a day of family fun at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community

The Boys and Girls Club of Central Vancouver Island invites the public to tee it up at their 13th annual Golf Tournament, taking place May 29 at the Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

This popular annual event is a major fundraising initiative of the club and a great opportunity for local businesses, families, and friends to join the fun and share a unique community experience.

The golf tournament is fun for any skill level, even if you’ve never golfed before, and a great social outing to share with your staff, your favourite clients, or neighbours. If you can’t spend the day, there are lots of other ways to be involved including donations of silent auction items, gift certificates for services, on site sponsorships, or by being a volunteer.

“We have lots of activities planned for a fun-filled day on the course followed by a delicious dinner and entertainment,” says BGCCVI director and event coordinator Robin Smart. “We’re looking forward to working with some new faces and community partners this year, and spending the day getting to know the people in the business community who support us.”

“The BGCCVI offers families access to a wide range of services each year, including parenting support and resources, licensed child care programs, and before and after school care,” says BGCCVI director of communication Kelly Barnie. “Hosting a community fundraising event is a wonderful way to bring people together and meet some of our financial goals at the same time.”

Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses wanting to feature on-site samples, displays, or get their business mentioned to listeners of 98.9 The Goat, whose radio personalities will be on location sharing the day’s events.

For more information on how to register your team, ask about sponsoring opportunities, or donate items to the silent auction, email rsmart@bgccvi.com, call 250-218-0904 or visit the BGCCVI website at http://www.bgccvi.com.
