Star of the Sea Parish’s fourth annual golf tournament is set to tee off in September, and in an attempt to raise more money for a worthy cause, organizers are seeking a title sponsor.
“We haven’t had sponsors in the past, and all the money was raised by our parishioners, so with the various sponsorship packages we’re offering now, we hope to be able to raise even more,” said Star of the Sea’s golf committee chair Mario Ylanan of the event, which is planned for Sept. 8 at Surrey’s Eaglequest Coyote Creek Golf Course.
This year, funds will benefit the Star of the Sea’s King’s Banquet Soup Kitchen, which runs Tuesdays at the church (1153 Fir St.).
The tournament is still accepting registrations for those wishing to golf. Last year’s tournament had 78 golfers, and Ylanan said they’re hoping for at least 100 this time around.
