Summerland Kiwanis to hold charity golf tournament

A golf tournament next month will raise money for the treatment of children’s cancers.

A golf tournament next month will raise money for the treatment of children’s cancers.

The tournament, organized by the Summerland Kiwanis Club, will raise funds for the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Project. “If they can cure children’s cancers, it could also help adults,” said Beverly Johnson, one of the tournament organizers.

The Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Project works with hospitals in Vancouver, Seattle and Portland.

The tournament will be held on Sunday, Sept. 8 at the Summerland Golf and Country Club. Registration is 11:30 a.m. with a shotgun start tee time at 1 p.m.

There are spaces for 128 golfers.

Johnson said organizers are hoping to raise $20,000 from the event.

At present, they have received around $5,000 in donated prizes  and another $3,000 in other donations from the community.

Depending on the level of support and participation this year, the tournament could become a regular feature.

“If we can pull this off, it’s going to be an annual event,” Johnson said. “I was totally amazed by the response from the community. Now it’s a matter of getting the golfers.” Those who wish to register should contact Johnson at 778-516-0081 or email
