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.

Contact the Greater Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce to register. Mail to 32630 State Highway 20, Oak Harbor, Wash. 98277. Fax to 360-679-1624. Call Ronnie Wright with questions, at 360-675-6838.
