Charity Golf Tourney update
Next Wednesday marks the first Wellington Financial Charity Golf Tournament. We are looking forward to hosting over 100 golfers at Eagles Nest. Unfortunately, I have yet to swing a club this year but I’m told the course is fabuous and we are looking forward to a great day. We are hoping to raise between $30k-$50k for our new Charitable Foundation, with much of the proceeds going to three main charities. The Jean Tweed Centre, the Sunnybrook Hospital NICU, and the National Ballet.
Kim Bozak is the Chair of the Foundation, and will M/C the evening.
On the novel side, we are fortunate to feature a top notch prize, provided you get a hole in one that is. The Private Collection, started by entrepreneur Eric Siebert, is a unique value proposition for everyone who’d like to drive a sports car for a few weeks a year, but doesn’t want to shell out $200,000 plus insurance and maintenance for the pleasure of doing so.
The first hole-in-one on the 15th hole will receive a 1-year membership with The Private Collection (valued at over $36,000), Toronto’s most exclusive exotic car club. It offers members a simple way to enjoy highvalue vehicles free of the burdens associated with full-time ownership. The growing fleet of cars includes Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and other current model exotic sports cars. Best part is, you get to choose which one you want for that weekend.
Keeping up with the car theme, for those participants attending the dinner there will be a door prize draw for a weekend with your choice of a Porsche 911 Cabriolet Convertible, Chevrolet Corvette or a Lotus!
But we are not coming to pick you up if the OPP catch you going 267 km/h on the 401.
One of the two Canadian golf pros that we sponsor corporately, Danny King, will be joining us as well. Pro Richard Scott will be off playing a tournament (while wearing our hat of course) and can’t make it.
A hearty thanks to our many sponsors.
