One of the most successful charity golf tournaments/events in the Ottawa area is returning this weekend.
Playing Forward For Wishes raised more than $40,000 in 2015, almost 4 times the yield in 2014.
The increased amount is due to a extraordinary effort by all involved, including sponsors InnovaPost and host club, Metcalfe Golf & Country Club.
To be held this year on July 24th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. the event is a family affair that aims to teach children to concept of Paying It Forward in their community.
The fun-filled event gives parents and children an opportunity to enjoy a fun day of golf and many, many other activities while raising money that will go toward granting the wishes of another child.
– 3, 4, 5, or 9 holes of golf
– Enjoy Fun Day Activities on location throughout the day:
– Touch a Truck: Firetruck, Ambulance and Police Car
– Rock Climbing Wall
– Bouncy Castle and Bouncy Obstacle Course for Kids
– Face Painting
– Loot Bags for Kids
– Little Rays Reptiles
– BBQ for the family
– Prizes and awards presented at closing ceremonies
Three local children will have their Wishes come true thanks to the efforts of participants and donors at this year’s event.
Tournament organizers explain, “Playing it Forward for Wishes supports our belief that golf is not only a tremendous vehicle to encourage family activity, but also a game which children can enjoy for the rest of their lives. This event helps instil the Paying It Forward mindset into children at a young age. Children who have participated in the past have gained an understanding of how fortunate they are while gaining awareness about what they can do to make a difference in the lives of other children.”
“We are thrilled with the participation of our community,” said Rob Howell, General Manager, Metcalfe Golf Club. “Golf & Fun Day keeps growing each year with involvement from local businesses and families contributing to this important initiative.”
