Help Kelowna girl walk again by buying a dinner ticket to this charitable event!

Golf for Julia is back for the sixth year!

Julia developed a blood clot in her spine at 17 months old, which caused a spinal cord injury that left her unable to walk.

After having the blood clot removed she was left with the massive job of learning how to walk again.

While she has made progress towards being able to walk again, her equipment and therapy costs are not covered by any government funding, presenting another obstacle for her and her family to overcome.

So how can you help? By joining the event for lots of fun, food and drinks on the course, followed by a delicious meal and silent auction, to raise money for Julia’s treatment costs.

The charitable event takes place on August 28th at Sunset Ranch Golf Club and all of the funds raised will go towards the large costs required for Julia’s therapies and essential equipment.

While the golf tickets are officially sold out, you can still partake in the fun and support Julia by joining them for dinner and buying a 50/50 ticket, purchasing a raffle ticket, donating an item to the silent auction or becoming a sponsor.

Join for dinner

Tickets for the dinner are $35 and can be purchased here. A 50/ 50 raffle will also be happening during the dinner, and it’s a great chance to support the cause and potentially win some extra cash.

The dinner includes a Sunset Salad as the first course, fitted with local vegetables, sun-dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and champagne cheddar cheese with house-made balsamic vinaigrette.
