(Halifax, June 5, 2019) -

KidSport Nova Scotia has been selected as the charity of choice for the ninth annual Wilson Fuel Charity Golf Classic. Each year the proceeds raised in the tournament are donated to a charity and this year Wilsons has chosen to help Nova Scotian families register their children for sports. “Currently one third of Canadian families can’t afford the rising start-up costs associated with youth sports” said Colin Gillis, Coordinator at KidSport Nova Scotia. “We are very grateful that the Wilson family has picked us as the charity of choice this year. It’s sure to be an impactful event.” 

“Wilson Fuel Co. Limited is extremely proud to support KidSport Nova Scotia through the 2019 Wilson Fuel Charity Golf Classic. With the generous support of our dedicated staff and valued business partners, we look forward to helping in the effort of removing financial barriers, So ALL Kids Can Play!” said Joel Doucette, VP Supply & Wholesale.

The tournament will take place on August 12 at the Glen Arbour Golf Club in Halifax. Registration options include an all-inclusive day of golf, dinner only, event sponsorship, or online donations to KidSport.
