Following in the footsteps of last year’s fantastic result at the 15th Anniversary Celebration of The Georgian Bay Club Foundation ($335,000 raised + $100,000 matching donation from Larry Law of Living Water Resorts), The Foundation is pleased to announce another successful event at this year’s 16th Annual Charity Golf Tournament. On Friday, August 16th, The Foundation raised an incredible $265,000!!!  To date, $2,300,000 has been raised and donated to local community charities – outstanding!

The Foundation would like to thank The Georgian Bay Club and Larry and Shelley Dunn, all participants, sponsors, volunteers and Board members who make this event possible.  We could not have done it without the generous support of Dinner Sponsors Iain & Dawna Green, Lunch Sponsors Bob & Lise Arnett, Cocktail Hour Sponsors Chris & Ellen Budd, Prize Sponsors Michael & Ingrid Dick and Wine Sponsors Sean & Lynne Seawright.

Special thanks to Platinum Sponsor Willson International, Gold Sponsor Fiera Capital Private Wealth, Kryptonite Sponsor The McEwan Family Foundation, Silver Sponsors Teri Band, Rick Horodyski & Kathy Dewling and Scotiabank.  

The Foundation would also like to recognize Peter Willson for his outstanding matching donation of $50,000 to the Live Auction and to Live Auction Sponsors Rick Brock, One Ocean Expeditions, The Georgian Bay Club, Jamie Hussey, Jeff Davis, Paula Zubek, Aspen Skiing Company/Aspen Alps & Bruce Kerr (AirMiles).

The Foundation is proud of its role in making a difference and positively impacting the overall health and well-being of our local communities.  This year the money raised will be donated to the following local heroes at a reception and cheque presentation in early October:  Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation, Meaford Hospital Foundation, Barbara Weider House (Home Horizons), Events for Life, Georgian Triangle Humane Society, Beaver Valley Outreach, and The Backpacks for Learning Program.
