Tee Cup Charity Golf Tournament is seeking a few foursomes

It’s a great networking opportunity that’s for an amazing cause.

The 8th annual Tee Cup Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Country Meadows Golf Course, 8400 No. 6 Rd., with the beneficiary being Touchstone’s Front Porch Program, which provides free counselling services for families.

The charity effort is organized by the founders of Women Making a Difference: Donna Price, Janet Clouston and Christine Campbell.

Campbell said there remains a few spots open for female golfers, and she’s hoping the local community will once again step up to support this worthy cause.

“We need (a few) more foursomes...we can do it,” she said.

Campbell said you don’t really need to be a golfer to participate.

Singles and pairs are welcome, she said, and this year’s $150 per person entrance fee comes with an $85 tax receipt.

“It’s a fabulous networking opportunity. There’s lots of business owners, business leaders...It’s a fun way to get into the game, no experience necessary.”

For the past seven years, they’ve organized the charity golf tourney and dinner, encouraging women to bring out their golf gear for a fun day on the greens.

To register for the tournament, visit www.teecupgolf.com or e-mail teecup@telus.net for more information.

While the golf tournament is for women only men are more than welcome for the dinner which follows.

And since there’s space for only 144 golfers, women are urged to sign up early. There are also a limited number of power carts available, so call 604-241-4653 to make a reservation.

There’s a shot-gun start to the event at 1 p.m., followed by a deluxe buffet dinner, along with some fabulous prizes available.

Four lucky participants will be selected to take part in the Ultimate Shoot Out, sponsored by Cowell Auto Group, and features three new vehicles, $25,000 cash, and a $10,000 donation to Touchstone Family Association.
