With more than eleven million Canadians living with diabetes, chances are it affects you or someone you love. You can make a difference by helping Diabetes Canada improve the lives of people living with diabetes and help find a cure to this terrible disease. Corporate support is a key element to the success of our initiative
Our fundraising activities are associated with our personal endeavor to raise funds in support of the Diabetes Canada’s mission and vision of helping to support research, advocacy, education and programs. The funds raised will be directed to camps for children living with type 1 diabetes. In fact, $1,500 will send a child to camp for a week, and $500 funds a research lab for half a day. This golf tournament alone has raised in excess of $200,000.00 over the past 15 years and we hope to sufficiently contribute to growing that amount for years to come. Our 2019 goal of $32,000.00 was successfully achieved. Our goal for the 2020 tournament will be $25,000.00 to which we hope to exceed.
The 16th Annual Diabetes Charity Golf Tournament will be hosted by RND Construction on Monday August 17, 2020 at The Canadian golf and Country Club in Ashton, Ontario with a 12:30 shotgun start. The tournament traditionally attracts 144 golfers consisting of local business professionals, community partners and related supporters. All golfers receive a welcome package, lunch, golf, shared cart, dinner will be served on course and a door prize.
Here’s what we are doing to ensure your safety. All carts will have a cart divider/sneeze guard. Our silent auction will be held online. We will not be holding a live auction this year. Lunches will be a special treat provided by Kelsey’s Roadhouse. We will forgo the typical dinner gathering and instead will be serving you dinner right out on the golf course. All golf results will be live and on screen in your golf carts. We are doing everything that we can to ensure and safe and happy event for all.
