Telus mini-golf event in Parksville to raise cash for Boys and Girls Clubs

Riptide Lagoon Adventure Golf hosts inaugural FUNdraiser

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island will host their inaugural Telus Mini-Golf Family FUNdraiser at Parksville’s Riptide Lagoon Adventure Golf on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The event, which features mini-golf, bumper cars, live music, face painting, balloon twisting and more fun activities, is a significant fundraising event for the local Boys and Girls Clubs.

“We’re excited to see the participation of so many corporate sponsors, especially for a first time event,” said Renee Bohun, BGCCVI resource development and communications manager.

“We wanted to create a day that’s fun for families and also inexpensive, while raising funds for the Boys and Girls Clubs at the same time. A family of four can play a round of mini-golf for only $30.”

The main event takes place at the popular Riptide Lagoon Adventure Golf, located at 1000 Resort Dr. in Parksville. The event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

A special VIP event for adults, VIPs and sponsors takes place at the same location on Friday night from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be mini-golf, bumper cars, food and beverage options and live music. Mount Arrowsmith Brewing Company and local wines will also be sampled at the event. Tickets can be purchased at GolfForTheKids.ca.

A silent auction with awesome prizes from local businesses, a 50/50 draw and draw prizes will also happen throughout the event day. Don’t forget, there’s no need to eat before you go so make sure you bring your appetite for the Save-On-Foods Charity BBQ. All proceeds from the BBQ go to support BGCCVI. The Telus Mini-Golf Family Fun Day provides funds that support programs at the regional Boys and Girls Clubs.
