The Nanaimo Clippers will pick up their hockey sticks soon, but first they’ll swing the golf clubs.
The team is holding its Colliers International and Nanaimo Clipper Mid-Island Charity Golf Tournament Aug. 15 at Fairwinds Golf Club at Nanoose Bay. The event is a fundraiser for the junior A hockey club and will also benefit the Columbian Centre Society.
Special guests include Clippers part-owner Kelly Hrudey and NHLer and Clippers alumni David LeNeveu. Each foursome will play with a Clippers player from the past or present.
Cost to participate is $195, which includes 18 holes of golf, a power cart, lunch and a dinner banquet. Tickets are also available for just the banquet, for $45.
For information on sponsoring the event or playing in it, please call Farren Ferguson at 250-751-0593 or 250-619-7700.
