Prince George, B.C.-  The annual Special Olympics fundraising Golf Tournament  is set for the 16th of June  in Prince George.

This is the 24th anniversary  of the event which raises money for  local  Special Olympic athletes to take part in  sporting events with their peers.

The events  promote a safe and healthy lifestyle for  all competitors.

While there are other events taking place in the community to raise funds for  Special Olympics,  this is the only one where each and every dollar  stays in Prince George. “We have no administration fees, and we are  strictly run by volunteers” says Lucia Van Hage,  one of the Special Olympics Directors.

There  are 120 Special Olympics athletes in P.G. and a further 90 volunteers who  coach and  assist them.

The golf tournament features a  Texas scramble,  putting contest, silent auction, and a banquet.

Registration for a team of four is $500  or  individuals can sign up for $125.  Those who  aren’t into golfing,  but  still want to help out  can make a donation to  be a sponsor.

More information  is available by contacting Lucia Van Hage at 250-964-6056



uh, what course? There are several in and around town.
