Fraser River Valley Lions Club teed up for June 30
Attention golfers! Put Tuesday, June 30, at Pole Creek Golf Course on your calendar. The Fraser River Valley Lions Club is again sponsoring its annual tournament with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Arrive early to enjoy pancakes from the familiar Lions trailer, where lunch will also be served mid-day (both included in the $125 per player registration green fee along with cart, prizes, giveaways, and a fantastic silent auction).
Plan to stay for the post-tournament festivities and to peruse the auction opportunities and to bid on items such as a Winter Park season pass, dinner for two at Sunspot, a Hawaiian condo vacation, gift certificates for local restaurant dinners, a dental appointment, hand-carved western folk figures by Bill Browne, or a beautiful quilt hand made by Debbie Wehmeyer.
On this fifth Tuesday in June, trophies will be awarded for best men’s, women’s, and mixed teams. Bring friends, clients, and co-workers for the fun of a four-person scramble start. Register online at fraservalleylions.org, pay by check, cash or Pay Pal – contact the webmaster at the Lions web address or any Lion member with questions. Golfers may also register at the tournament, preferably as a foursome.
All proceeds from the tournament benefit Grand County nonprofits. So, play to benefit your favorite charity as well as to have a fantastic golf day!
Golfers and friends will also have the rare opportunity to win a Karen Vance fine art giclee printed on matte fine art canvas, titled “Alpine Spring.” This is number two of an edition of only seven artist proofs. The original medium was oil on linen and sold for $8,500. This giclee is the same size as the original and is valued at $750. One raffle ticket holder will have a very lucky day!
Karen says she chose to donate this piece especially because it reminds her of the lupine carpets under the trees at Pole Creek Golf Course.
Raffle tickets are available from Lions members and/or at the Fraser Safeway on Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21, from 9 a.m. to noon, as well as at the golf tournament.
