Newmarket, ON – The 8th annual Robin Evans Bradford Charity Golf Tournament in memory of Gary Colangelo (a York Regional Police Superintendent) will take place on Friday, June 2nd at the Harbour View Golf & Country Club in Gilford. The tournament has raised more than $140,000 for a variety of causes including the War Amps, the Bradford Food Bank, a school breakfast program, seniors who require in-home care, people with disabilities, a reading program at Chris Hadfield Public School and more. Organizer Robin Evans, a REALTOR® with Sutton Group - Future Realty Inc.*, invites sponsors to help make this year’s tournament another success.
“The golf course is one of the best and we are going to have a wonderful prime rib
dinner catered by Little Black Dress Catering,” says Robin.
“For the second year, we’ll be supporting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program, which assists underprivileged kids who can’t afford sports equipment. We’re happy to announce that Canadian Tire is donating a gas barbeque for our draw.”
As in previous years, the tournament offers players the chance to win approximately
$8,000 in prizes plus a $10,000 hole-in-one prize. The fee for golf and dinner is $175 and a foursome is $700. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $250. Please contact Robin Evans at 905-953-6200 to sign up.
Robin notes that sponsors are the key to making this event so successful. As a thank- you, he invites them to join the tournament dinner and he takes out a full-page advertisement in the local newspaper listing the names. Sponsors have ranged from individuals to major corporations.
Each year, this tournament supports War Amps, a non-profit founded in 1918 by amputee veterans returning home from the World War I. Today, War Amps assists children and adults who have lost limbs due to cancer, car accidents and other reasons, as well as military personnel with amputations.
