WMB Charity Golf tournament opens online auction with opportunity to bid on great prizes

The YMCA of Southern Interior BC has announced this year’s dates for their annual Wilson M. Beck (WMB) Charity Golf Tournament Online Auction. 
Running from July 3 to 19, this auction will kick off fundraising efforts for the 13th annual tournament at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club with all proceeds supporting the YMCA. Prizes up for bid include a craft beer making experience, professional golf lessons, boat rentals, limited edition Beatles print, golf for 4 with power carts at Kelowna Golf and Country Club and so much more.


The event itself will take place from 12 to 9 p.m. on July 17th and will include 144 golfers and a live auction. 100 per cent of the proceeds will stay local and go directly towards supporting families in need. The team at Wilson M. Beck Insurance is proud to sponsor the event and support a charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of our community. 

“It’s incredibly rewarding to be part of such an impactful event as this golf tournament,” said Steven Pavelich, Board Alumni of the YMCA of Southern Interior BC and managing partner of Wilson M. Beck Insurance Services (Kelowna) Inc. “The reach the Y has in the community, from newborns to seniors as young as 99, is heartwarming.”

While team registration has sold out for the 18-hole golf tournament, online bids and direct donations will go a long way to enrich the lives of some of those most vulnerable in our community.  Everyone can access vital services for their health and well-being at the Y, whether it’s through cardiac rehabilitation, swim lessons, fitness challenges, childcare, career development services, mental health support or financial assistance.

For Pavelich, it’s always been about supporting a cause that positively impacts the local community. “Our intention has always been to work closely with a charity who we could really embrace, one that shares our values of caring for and protecting those less fortunate, and that’s what we’ve done by partnering with the Y.”
