The smoky skies cleared on Wednesday, August 16th for the 27th Annual Capri Charity Golf 4 Kids Tournament at Harvest Golf Club. The yearly event brought together local community members and top business partners from across Canada for a day of charity golf, contests, auctions, and fundraising for Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.
Okanagan Boys & Girls Clubs provide programs for children and youth that support the healthy physical , educational and social development of young people and their families. Fundraisers like the Capri Charity Golf 4 Kids Tournament help get us one step closer to reaching our Vision; that all children and youth discover and achieve their dreams and grow up to be healthy, successful and active participants in society.
“We are so delighted that Capri has chosen us as the charity of choice for this golf tournament... the 1300 youth that walk through our doors every day - from very small kids to teenagers who are trying to navigate the difficulty of making the transition to adulthood to our 300 staff who work every day with kids and families up and down the valley; we all appreciate so much the support you’ve given us and are delighted to be here with the Capri Partners and sponsors from the community.” –Diane Entwistle, C EO – Okanagan Boys and Girls Club
"There's no better charity than Boys and Girls Clubs to build up young people in our community" -Tim Miller, President - Capri Insurance
