Teeing it up for literacy in Chilliwack

The Links Fore Literacy fundraising golf tournament is set to tee off July 19 at Meadowlands Golf Course.

Four-person teams will compete in a Texas Scramble format for fabulous prizes while helping to support local literacy programs, delivered by the Chilliwack Learning Society (CLS).

“The CLS plans and takes action to ensure the availability of high-quality literacy programs and services for the most vulnerable people in our community,” says CLS president Maggie Saunders. “This is our first major fundraiser and we’re hoping folks come out not only to support our literacy efforts, but also to have a great time playing golf for a good cause.”

The tournament begins with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Great prizes, a putting and chipping contest, 50/50 draw, long drive and KPs on par threes, and a $5,000 hole-in-one contest are all part of this fun event.

Tickets are $75 and includes dinner.

• To purchase tickets call 604-392-2404 or visit www.chilliwacklearning.com.
