An event billed as a laid back way to meet other young professionals, while raising money for charity, has hit its mark in Vernon.
The third annual BDO Lawn Days of Summer was held at the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club, and raised $3,215 for the Food Action Society of the North Okanagan.
The networking event saw teams of four compete at the Club in August, with Kidston and Company LLP coming out on top.
The tournament was also kind to the environment, with almost everything either recycled or composted.
“All cans and bottles were recycled and any food-related waste was composted, so the tournament generated a very minor amount of non-recyclable garbage. Way to go!,” says Samara Sonmor, Executive Director of the Food Action Society.
Sonmore says the funds will support their gardening and cooking programs.
“Thank you for caring about improving food security in our community.”
Ute Cummings, event co-chair, says the organizing committee, JCI Vernon is very happy with the turn out and are already looking forward to the summer of 2019 and an even bigger success.
“We also couldn’t have done it without the support of our local business sponsors. Thank you to our presenting sponsor, BDO Canada, our BBQ
and burger sponsors, A&W and Fix Auto – Vernon. To our lane sponsors; MQN, The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, Davidson Pringle LLP, Kidston & Company, and Fountain Tire.
