With Father’s Day just around the corner, celebrate by gifting dad an experience that the two of you can share. Better yet, enjoy an outing that gives back to important causes!

From coast to coast, more Canadians are playing golf than ever before. Whether your dad is a pro on the golf course or watching from the sidelines, attending a golf tournament together is a great way to spend some quality time. These golf tournaments are committed to providing a safe outdoor experience, making it the perfect opportunity to have fun while giving back.

For over a decade, Renos for Heroes (RFH) has been hosting an annual golf tournament to raise money for injured Canadian veterans.

RFH works alongside the Canadian military to assist veterans who have sustained physical injuries in the line of duty or are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder by making the home modifications necessary to maintain their quality of life and independence. With the support from donors, builders, contractors, and manufacturers, RFH provides building materials, labour, and project management when government funding has been exhausted.

This year’s tournament will be held on June 17, 2021, at Angus Glen in Markham. This lively tournament brings together people from all walks of life, including veterans, civilians, and the construction industry for a fun day out on the course (socially distanced with masks, of course). Meet and mingle with inspirational Canadians who have served our country, many of whom have benefitted from the work RFH does.

Like many charities, the pandemic has made it very difficult for RFH to raise funds, so kindly consider attending or sponsoring this great tournament to help give back to the Canadian heroes who have given us so much.

Register at www.renosforheroes.org.
The tournament is $225 per golfer, or $900 per foursome.

This tournament sells out every year so don’t delay booking your spot! Please visit www.renosforheroes.org for more information and to register. This tournament will follow in accordance with all provincial COVID-19 guidelines.

Radius Child and Youth Services has been providing help to children, youth, and families for almost 40 years. A widely recognized leader of specialized mental health services for families affected by interpersonal abuse, neglect, and violence Radius delivers over 5,000 hours of counselling each year.

Throughout the pandemic and mandated lockdowns, Radius has continued to provide services to our clients virtually. As well, for clients unable to attend virtual treatment, our dedicated clinical staff have provided in-person therapy with safety precautions in place to ensure the health of both clients and staff.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unfortunate impact on abuse and violence. In these challenging times, the Tournament of Hope is more important than ever before. As referrals continue to grow, in no small part due to the mandated lockdowns, the need for support also grows to meet the demand for our services in the communities we serve.

Please join Radius in building futures free from abuse. To register, sponsor, or donate to the online auction, contact: Margaret McConnell, Fundraising Manager at mmcconnell@radiuschild-youthservices.ca or visit: www.radiuscys.ca.

Fore-Play for Charity, Women’s Networking Golf Tournament has been proudly supporting The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health since day one.

Now in its sixth year, the tournament is teeing off on Thursday, September 9th, 2021, at The Marshes Golf Club in Ottawa.

Described by the ladies as “a day you won’t soon forget,” Fore-Play for Charity is Ottawa’s best women’s only networking tournament designed for professional businesswomen looking to make valuable connections and give back to the community.

The day consists of 9-holes of golf with a lot of excitement as tournament sponsors attempt to out-do each other with activities on each hole, as they compete for the “Best Hole Sponsor” trophy. Each hole sponsor ups their game every year with some past favourites including massages and champagne, a charity dunk tank, life-size Jenga, beach volleyball and yes, lots of drinks and snacks.

To date, Fore-Play for Charity has sold out within three weeks of registration launch, and though the tournament will look slightly different due to COVID-19 protocols this year, the show must go on!
