The 4th Annual Blue Tie Golf Day fundraiser for the Island Prostate Centre is set to tee-off again at Morningstar Golf Course on Aug. 26.

Shotgun tee time will start at 9:30 a.m. and it’s open to men and women golfers. There will be fun hole activities, exciting draw prizes as well as live and silent auctions.

In the last three years since the event started, $67,385 has been raised to support men and families with prostate cancer.

Organizers are once again inviting people to come out and take part in this fundraising golf event.

It will cost $170 per person which includes a $100 income tax receipt, 18 holes of golf and a great banquet dinner.

This community golf day will also be funding the inaugural Blue Tie Men’s Health Day for free PSA Prostate Testing in September for the Parksville Qualicum Beach area. One in eight men in their lifetime will be affected by prostate cancer health issues.
