Chamber plans Aug. 21 golf tournament

Oak Harbor’s Chamber of Commerce on Aug. 21 will host a fundraiser golf tournament at the Whidbey Golf Club, 2430 S.W. Fairway Lane, Oak Harbor. Registration and a buffet luncheon start at 11:30 a.m., and the shotgun start — a simultaneous tee-off from different holes — is at 1 p.m.

This is the tournament’s first year, said Chamber golf chairman Ronnie Wright. “We’re trying to pull the business community together for a day of fun and to raise money for chamber to do a few different projects,” he said.

Those projects include streetlights in some parts of town and a fireworks show on New Year’s Eve, he said.

Tournament funding opportunities range from being the title sponsor, with a company’s or individual’s name and logo prominently displayed on all posters and programs, for $5,000, to being a game sponsor, with a sign at several of the games, for $200. Hole sponsorships — a 12-by-12 foot booth at a hole with signs showing a sponsor’s name and logo — cost $600.

Entry fee to play is $135, which includes golf, the luncheon, snacks and an awards ceremony with hors d’oeuvres.
