Golf enthusiasts and Okanagan philanthropists are set to come together this summer when the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre hosts its ‘Tee it Up’ tournament in Oliver.

Registration is now open for the charity event, which will be held at the Fairview Mountain Golf Club on Aug. 30.

Since its inception in 2021, the tournament has raised more than $177,000 in support of the child and youth development centre.

“The OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre is extremely grateful for the continued generosity of Fairview Mountain Golf Club to help raise awareness and funds for needed supports and services for the children and families of the South Okanagan Similkameen,” said Heather Miller, executive director at OSNS.

“It’s an honour to partner on this significant cause for the fourth annual Tee It Up.”

Funds from the tournament will go toward education for children and families, the purchasing of medical equipment and the increase of access to services.

Event attendees can expect a day of golf and a dinner that will be accompanied by prizes and a live auction.

“I’m fortunate to have visited OSNS for a tour and have seen first-hand that it is a well-run Centre with a dedicated team,” said Brian McDonald, general manager and director of golf at Fairview. “I’m thrilled to get behind this cause again in 2024 as I know how important fundraisers like this are to the success of the organization.”

Early bird registrants who sign up before April 29, will be entered into a draw for a chance to win $150 to Okanagan Virtual Golf in downtown Penticton, two tickets to a Vees playoff game and a VIP tour of OSNS for their golf team.

Registration is available online at

OSNS has been helping children with developmental challenges across the region since 1978, with physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, speech therapy, autism intervention among the services offered.
