Literacy the big winner at Kimberley golf tournament

Over $9,500.00 at the Annual Kimberley Literacy Charity Golf Tournament

The Kimberley Literacy Charity Golf Tournament has once again been a great success raising over $9500 for the Friends of the Kimberley Public Library and Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy Kimberley. Above

Over 70 golfers and guests came out to Bootleg Gap Golf course on Sunday, Sept. 16th for a wonderful sunny afternoon of golf, laughter, prizes and very delicious food.

The Krantz/Jenkins team got the top score and Gord Jenkins also won the putting contest by soundly sinking his putt in one go. Donna Singer and Bill Hughes won closest to the pin, Harley Lee and Julia won longest putt, Kevin Hoglund and Debra Krantz won the longest drive, and Josh Lowden and Ilona Hale won the longest drive from a chair. The “Fifty Shades” team scooped the top score on the Literacy Quiz and the “Alice in Wonderland” team won best book theme costume.

The day’s biggest winners were the Friends of the Kimberley Public Library and Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy Kimberley.  The tournament raised over $9,500.00.  The LITERACY CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT could not have happened without the generous support of many corporate and individual donors.

The Friends of the Kimberley Public Library and CBAL Kimberley Literacy would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all participants, volunteers, supporters and sponsors.

Thank you to all our volunteers extraordinaire, and a warm and special thank you, to Trevor, Hayley, Darrell, Annie, all the staff and the Board at Bootleg Gap Golf Course.
