Heat golfers needs to come up with $40,000 to field a team for the 2017-18 PACWEST competitive season.

There will also be a putting contest, chip into a boat contest, 50/50 draw and a key lock game.

Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased in advance at MichaelBrook Ranch Golf Course or by calling Cheryl at 250-863- 4883.
