Tee it Up for Education Charity Golf Tournament hosted by Okanagan Hockey Community Foundation
Penticton, B.C. -- The Okanagan Hockey Community Foundation (OHCF) is proud to announce the launch of its annual, and rescheduled, Tee it Up for Education Charity Golf Tournament.
The 2022 tournament was rescheduled due to Covid restrictions and is set take place on Tuesday, June 14 at the picturesque Penticton Golf & Country Club.
“The Foundation is extremely grateful to be able to actively participate in fundraising events again after so many unknowns that have taken place in the last couple of years,” said Michael O’Connor, chair of OHCF. “Re-engaging in our efforts has been a long time coming in order to raise significant funds in support of educational opportunities for student athletes and families facing financial obstacles.”
“We feel fortunate and are confident to be able to kick start our efforts again now that public gatherings have become accessible and acceptable with so much uncertainty,” said Andy Oakes, president of Okanagan Hockey Group. “We saw the benefits of providing a stable, secure and healthy environment to student athletes during the challenges over the last few years and look forward to raising funds to provide this chance to those that may otherwise not have it.”
“To have the opportunity to host an event of this size in 2022 is good for the community and everyone involved. It has been a long time coming for charity events,” said Guy Dow, General Manager, Penticton Golf & Country Club. “We are very much looking forward to hosting OHCF and their guests.”

Joining Okanagan Hockey Academy was the best decision I made to advance my hockey development. I grew as a person and as a player thanks to our amazing coaches. My education was held to a very high standard by our education advisor and tutors. I also met people who will be lifelong friends."
