The clock is ticking down, but there’s still time to help the dinosaurs.

Qualicum Beach Museum manager Netanja Waddell said there are still a few spots available for the museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year, big Putt for Paleo golf tournament, slated for June 23.

“Our aim is to provide a wonderful day with family and friends,” Waddell said.

In return, she’s hoping for a strong turnout to raise money for the much-anticipated expansion of the museum facility to house the museum’s world-class fossil collection.

“The museum and our world-class paleontology collection in particular continues to gain renown and is attracting more and more visitors to the area each year,” she said. “Based on  this, the apparent need for expanded facilities and services is becoming more urgent and continued support for the Museum Society will not only help us maintain current service levels, it will also be a springboard to our community’s heritage preservation for generations to come.”

Besides good company and fun for a good cause, the tournament will also feature great prizes in the putting contest, great prices in the silent auction, a delicious buffet roast pork dinner with herbed garlic salmon fillet, door prizes for every golfer and an exciting live auction.

The event, at the Arrowsmith Golf and Country Club, kicks off with registration at 11 a.m., and tee-off at 1 p.m. The cost is $99 for golfers and $39.99 for non-golfers who want only dinner.

Registration forms are available at the museum website at www.qbmuseum.net or at the museum.
