Business and sports community support accessible recreation

From the greens to an inspiring reception and fundraising campaign, the ninth annual Power To Golf Charity Classic raised a record-breaking $261,000 in support of Power To Be Aug. 27, 2015.

The tournament brought notable business leaders and athletes to Victoria Golf Club for a day on the links, followed by a private reception at Peter and Ali Gustavson’s home, the Atrium at Little Oaks.

Our amazing community of supporters makes it possible for Power To Be to offer inclusive, accessible recreation to youth and families in Victoria and Vancouver,” says Tim Cormode, Power To Be Executive Director. “We truly believe that everyone belongs in nature, and that given the opportunity to challenge themselves in that environment they will be able to develop confidence in all areas of their lives.”

To date, Power To Golf has raised more than $1 million in support of Power To Be.

On the course, 31 teams of golfers had the opportunity to connect with Power To Be’s community, including participants and volunteers. The evening offered guests incredible door prize adventure packages and impressive silent auction items made possible by the generous donations from Power To Be supporters across Canada and as far away as Thailand.

The evening reception was MCed by Olympic gold medalist Adam Kreek, accompanied by ‘Vanhattan’s man about town’ Fred Lee, a regular contributor to the Province, Vancouver Courier and CBC.
