On Thursday, August 22, 2019 friends, family and supporters gathered together at the Caledon Woods Golf Course to honor and celebrate the life of Dave Wright. Dave Wright was an incredible coach and mentor who believed in the inclusion of all children who wanted to be a part of sport. With the months leading up to this special event, KidSport Ontario and the Wright family worked together to create a day that not only celebrated the life Dave Wright but provided an opportunity to continue his life work by raising money for under-resourced children and youth. Thanks to everyone who attended, tournament sponsors for the support and in-kind donations for the dinner reception silent auction. The 2019 KidSport Ontario Golf Tournament in Memory of Dave Wright raised an incredible $33,110! That means at least 130 under-resourced children and youth from across Ontario will be off the sidelines and into the game next season! Thanks to everyone who supported the tournament this year and we look forward to next year’s event!
KidSport Ontario would like to thank the following sponsor’s; Closing the Gap Healthcare, New Balance, Lawrence Park Athletic Association, Parachute Executive Coaching, I AM Mending The Gap, North Toronto Basketball, Hyundai of Aurora and Consultony Design & Production for their generous support.
