Lisa Westermark, executive director for the foundation, says they are thrilled with the enthusiasm for this year’s tournament.
“We are especially grateful to all the amazing sponsors including our title sponsor The Paul Docksteader Foundation, in its second year of a three-year sponsorship.”
Westermark says Predator Ridge Resort continues to make a generous donation of the course, auction prizes and a prize table valued at $10,000 for the event.
Kal Tire is a Platinum Sponsor and will support the banquet portion of the fabulous day.
“We are grateful for the generous commitment of all our sponsors to supporting enhanced health care in the North Okanagan,” says Westermark.
Since its inception in 2009, the event has raised $1.4 million to support health care in a variety of critical needs at the hospital.
The day includes a hot buffet breakfast, putting contest, morning shot gun start, a Vegas scramble, and lots of fun on the course.
That’s followed by a gourmet dinner and live auction.
