Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course is once again sponsoring the “Swinging Skirts” charity golf tourney this Friday.

The club established this tournament in 2015 as a not-for-profit event to help women and children in Oliver and surrounding areas. It’s believed that some of the smaller charities that didn’t have big corporate businesses to back them up were “falling through the cracks.”

This is the club’s way to give back to the community. With the help of sponsors and golfers, the golf course has given more than $17,000 back to the community.

Last year the club partnered with WOW (Women of Oliver for Women) and Michelle Weisheit of Investors Group to share the value of supporting women and children in Oliver.

WOW is a non-profit service group that enriches the lives of adult females and children.
