The promoters of The Great Waterway Classic, a Canadian Tour event that will take place in Eastern Ontario over the next four years, will be hosting a special fund-raising breakfast. Evolution Golf & Event Management’s Tournament announced the event this morning. Hosted at the Smuggler’s Glen Golf Course Clubhouse from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 24th, the breakfast has two missions – to act as a volunteer recruitment and information session and to raise money for the tournament’s designated charity, the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation.
Burnbrae Farms of Lyn, Ontario are the sponsors of this event. Participants are asked to make a $10.00 donation, with all proceeds being donated to the foundation, the official charity of The Great Waterway Classic.
David Dargie, Tournament Director for this Canadian Tour event remarked, “Once again we have found some great partners who will help us with an event that will be both fun and informative. We are looking for 200 volunteers to work at The Great Waterway Classic, along with another 100 people who will want to caddy for the touring professionals. The March 24th breakfast will give our Tournament Committee the opportunity to talk about this historic tournament and sign up some willing volunteers, all while raising funds for our tournament’s charity.”
The 2012 Great Waterway Classic that will be held at Smuggler’s Glen is the first of four tournament sites, followed by Upper Canada GC in 2013; Loyalist CC in 2014; and Black Bear Ridge in 2015. Area golfers are encouraged to come “inside the ropes” and become a part of the first Canadian Tour event to be held in the 1000 Islands by becoming a tournament volunteer or caddy. An overview of the many duties assigned to volunteers will be outlined at the March 24th breakfast.
The organizers need to know the number of people who wish to attend, so anyone wanting to attend this volunteer recruitment breakfast should register by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on The Great Waterway Classic, please go to: www.thegreatwaterwayclassic.ca.
