PANDORA's Vox is a group of ladies who have a love of life, a love of music and a lovely way of making big things happen. Calling themselves a "vocal ensemble with an eclectic and creative style", these gals put on a show whatever the occasion may be. Their annual Christmas concert is legendary, as is their summer revue, but you can catch them all over the lower mainland. On June 29, the gals put together a great fund raiser at Seymour Golf and Country Club. The first annual Swingin' and Singin' Golf Tournament attracted friends, family and fans and raised money for the group and their other affiliated non-profit agencies (B.C. Cancer Agency and Sage Transition House to name a few).

|Newlyweds Ross and Ruby Curtis didn't care so much about the score on the course, just the fun they were still having together in each other's company.|
|Second soprano Ellen Domm was happy to see Rob Taylor safely in at the clubhouse with a +2 score.|
|Who puts an eraser on the end of a golf pencil? Don't worry, Mark Yasayko (left) and Mark Gouws didn't really change their score, they were just hamming it up for the camera.|
|Second soprano Patty Keith was busy raising money at the putting green alongside supporter, and all-round good guy, Ken Boxall.|
|Lining up her putt for a spectacular Vox finish was long-time member Ruth Finney.|
