The Play Fore Hearts 50/50 Raffle is an online raffle that complements the in-person Uplands Golf Club Annual Heart Tournament. Since 1978, the Uplands Golf Club Annual Heart Tournament has raised more than $3.3 million for cardiac care through the Victoria Hospitals Foundation. Players, sponsors, volunteers, and donors have all helped make the Tournament one of the longest-running, most successful charity tournaments in BC.

Thank you to the Tournament’s Title Sponsor, Peninsula Co-op for their generous and continued support. And thank you to CFAX 1070, Virgin Radio, CTV Vancouver Island, and for their kind support of the 50/50 raffle.
