For a third year, WOW has participated in the Adopt-a-Family Christmas Campaign sponsored by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club in Oliver. Adopted families are provided with hampers of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner for Christmas Day which enables families to enjoy the giving and receiving of the Christmas Spirit in our community.
September final weeding.
What a Day! Oh what a Turnout! What a Success!!!
WOW’s second Swinging Skirts Golf Tournament held on September 7th was a resounding SOLD OUT event. Nk’Mip Desert Canyon Golf Course, Investor’s Group and WOW once again co-sponsored this fun event.
With 120 ladies participating, there were activities on almost every hole, from marshmallow hits, hitting a ball into a water target, plinko, putting and more. It was noted one golfer was from Nova Scotia and another one from Vancouver. That is phenomenal!
All lady golfers each received a goody bag and a door prize. A free massage was available with the event ending with a delicious meal. Prizes were also handed out for golfing skills such as longest putt, longest drive, closest to the pin on second shot, etc. There were also two Hole-In-One prizes offered. Team skill prizes for low gross and low net were awarded in several handicap groupings and there were low gross prizes for a non-handicap group.
Thank you to the community for all your support and donations to help make this tournament a success.
This tournament was a charity event with WOW being the recipient of funds raised. Funds will go to WOW’s donation projects.
We are all looking forward to the third annual golf tournament next year.
This year WOW sponsored the Oliver’s Got Talent Show at the Roots and Fruits Festival held on Saturday, August 18th. The funds were used for food, refreshments as well as Thank You gifts for the performers.
Some of the members were able to attend the Thank you lunch at a later date.
