Kelowna Chamber of Commerce Partners with GolfBC Championship

The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce recently announced a creative marketing partnership with the GolfBC Championship: a Mackenzie Tour PGA TOUR Canada tournament taking place at Gallagher’s Canyon June 11th -17th. The agreement will see both groups participate and cross promote at a number of Chamber and GolfBC Championship events leading up to and including the tournament. The partners will promote each other on various social media platforms. Chamber members who become tournament sponsors will also be recognized on social media posts. As part of the deal, the Chamber will host the popular "Wine Around the Okanagan Reception" that tees off tournament week at Gallagher’s Canyon where Mackenzie Tour professionals are introduced to their Pro-Am team amateurs.

Tournament Director Hugh Vassos comments: “We are thrilled with the business relationship we have forged with the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and look forward to working with the dynamic organization to make the GolfBC Championship one of the top stops on the Tour. Together we want to demonstrate to the rest of Canada that Kelowna is a great place to live, work, and play. Who knows, maybe some of the visiting young professionals will one day decide to call Kelowna home. Thank you to Dan Rogers for his commitment to making this partnership a reality.”

“This is a great partnership for the Chamber,” says Dan Rogers, Executive Director of the Kelowna Chamber.  “Our members have a chance to get in on the Pro-Am Event – and the cross-promotion with Chambers Group Insurance strengthens the punch this tourney will have in the community. Plus we can all watch some great golf!”

The GolfBC Championship runs June 11th-17th at Gallagher's Canyon Golf & Country Club, with tournament days being held Thursday June 14th-Sunday June 17th. Passes are on sale now for the tournament. Get details and more information at golfbcchampionship.com
