Last call for Columbia Valley Chamber golf tournament

Copper into Gold returns

  • May. 1, 2019 2:05 p.m.

The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce is holding its Turn Copper Into Gold golf tournament on Monday, May 13th.

“It’s our major fundraising event for the Chamber,” said Pete Bourke, the Chamber’s new executive director.

The tournament will take place at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort on the Mountainside Golf Course and will commence at noon with a shotgun start.

He said the annual event, which has been running for 17 years, usually sells out. With only 24 individual spots available before press time, Mr. Bourke recommends booking as soon as possible to secure your place.

“It’s the last call for both sponsorship and registration,” he said, adding that participants can look forward to a day of networking, visiting with colleagues and business friends, meeting new Chamber members and rekindling old connections.

“It’s always a vibrant event,” he said.

It’s such a great time, in fact, that it’s billed as “the funnest golf tournament of the year.”

The 18-hole round will be followed by a dinner and a silent auction with more than 30 items ready to go home with the highest bidder.

To register, become a sponsor or donate auction items, contact the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce by calling 250-342-2844 or visiting them online at
