OVER $20,000 RAISED!
The 11th Annual Agur Lake Camp Charity Golf Tournament presented by Summerland Timber Mart was hosted at the Summerland Golf & Country Club on July 20th. It was a beautiful day with 107 golfers hitting the links to enjoy a day of golf all while raising money for the camp.
The day started with a delicious lunch, beverage and a crunchy apple provided by Summerland Subway, Cannery Brewing & The Apple Barn. Many participated in the one legged putting contest and the balloon pop before heading out for a 1:30 shotgun start. Out on the course, participants enjoyed a variety of competitions, designed to introduce a different perspective on the word “handicap” while golfing. The challenges included a straightest one-armed drive and a wheelchair drive contest.
Four hole in one contests sponsored by the companies recognized below, gave golfers the chance to win two brand new cars and up to $30,000 in cash!
A new contest this year included the Marshmallow Chipping Contest sponsored by ABK Restoration Services. Owner, Jeff McCallum, matched the funds raised on this hole and donated $640.00 back to the camp. If you visited Ken Sewell at the Summerland Timber Mart tent, you may have sampled some homemade brownies or coconut squares and enjoyed a complimentary beverage! Localmotive Organics offered samples of apple chips locally made which paired very nicely with wine tasting by Dirty Laundry Vineyard. There were many other challenges out on the course hosted by many of the sponsors listed below.
Dinner commenced at 6:30 where the winners were announced and a Live Auction was conducted by Bob Campbell. Emcee's Jan Mills & Roch Fortin were amazing and kept the evening running along smoothly.
