Fun on links helps Langley seniors home

The golf challenge was so much fun last year that the organizing committee for the Langley Lodge fundraiser decided to do it again this year.

Last year’s golf challenge offered the opportunity to ring the bell and win a car.

To change things up a bit, a cruise is the major prize, and rumour has it that the distance for the hole in one shot has been shortened. For men, the distance will be 150 yards, and for women the distance is a shorter 130 yards.

On June 8, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., the Langley Golf Centre, 21550 44th Ave., will be the host for a fun day of activities.

There will be nine activities in which to participate, including a marshmallow long drive, a Frisbee golf hole, a dumpster whiffle ball contest, to name just a few.

The day’s nine activities will culminate in a chance to sink a hole in one and win a cruise.

All proceeds will be going to the Langley Lodge’s programming needs. It’s a great way to support Langley’s first senior care home.

The Langley Lodge is managed by the Langley Care Society and the Langley Care Foundation is a registered charity that raises funds for the society. Funds raised augment the therapeutic recreation programs.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children under 16. Tickets will be available at the Langley Lodge, the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre plus individual vendors and clubs. There will be early bird draw prizes.
