We thank our Sponsors who help us substantially enhance the contribution to the charities we support.
This year there will be 32 teams participating in this tournament. Our community embraces amateur sport and reflects the values of sportsmanship. When a sporting event raises funds for a needed cause, and helps people stay active, that makes everyone involved a winner.
One of the driving principles for this tournament is giving back to the community. Therefore the charities we support are youth focused.
Camp McGovern has been a long standing beneficiary of our efforts. Several of their volunteers were out at the arenas helping us raise funds for their camp that runs all summer for a wide age range from across Southern Ontario communities giving kids who have difficult circumstances the huge breath of fresh air a week at a summer camp can bring.
Lutherwood Childrens Mental Health has been added in recent years. They also had representatives at each of the arenas. Their work is serving and helping a wide range of young people with mental health issues. They are very innovative with starting unique programs. When these programs succeed others tend to follow with funding programs they have been able to establish.
With all we do for this tournament, the opportunity to help young people have a better future is the driving force for your committee and our efforts. Over the last 13 years, this tournament has raised over $370,000!
Kevin and the 2018 Tournament Committee
