Cowichan Golfers Against Cancer aim for $500,000

The Cowichan Valley Golfers Against Cancer Golf Tournament is hoping to kick off its second quarter-century by getting over the $500,000 mark in all-time total donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.

This year’s tournament will take place on June 12, with as many as 180 golfers hitting the links at the Arbutus Ridge, Cowichan and Mount Brenton courses, thanks to donated tee times.

The entry fee is $125, and golfers will get receipts for a sizable portion of the fee, at least $70.

For 2015, the tournament also has added Chevron as a name sponsor.

Anyone interested in sponsoring a hole, donating to the live and silent auctions, or entering as a golfer should contact Ray Wheeler at 250-743-5277.
