On Wednesday, August 15th, the 3rd annual Joe Carter Classic Golf Tournament raised funds for The Children's Aid Foundation of Canada. Since 2010, the Joe Carter Classic has brought together celebrities from the worlds of sports and entertainment along with avid golfers to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation. It's reported that $500,000 has been raised from this event!
"We are extremely thankful for this wonderful gift," said Len Gamache, President of the
Children's Aid Foundation. "To ensure a lasting impact, we are using the endowment to establish Joe Carter Scholarships and the Joe Carter Family Support Fund, which will provide ongoing support where it's needed most. This fund will help the Foundation's efforts to promote greater access to post-secondary education and to sustain programs that support healthy and positive living environments for foster families and those in the early stages of leaving the child welfare system."
Presenting sponsors for the tournament, BlackBerry and TD Bank Group, as well as supporting sponsors SDI Marketing, Canada Goose, Callaway, Lug, CIBC, Toronto Star, Charton Hobbs, Labatt, J.F. Moore Communications and Golfer Aid. After party sponsors included Strellson and Belvedere Vodka.
