Join me in supporting the 2018 Y Golf Classic!
For the last 5 years, I’ve participated in the Y Golf Classic, in support of the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region. In addition to a great game of golf and the chance to network with Ottawa’s business leaders, my participation means helping kids in our community through the Y Golf Classic. This year, I took the next step and joined the Y Golf Classic planning committee.
You might be wondering why? Well for me, the Y has been part of my life since I first learned to swim at what is now the Taggart Family Y right in the heart of Ottawa. So I know firsthand, how much participating in a Y program can impact a child's life. And while I was lucky my parents could afford to provide me with the opportunities to participate in recreational programs like swimming lessons - unfortunately this is just not the case for many kids in our city.
Many families turn to the Y for help. Each year, the Y provides over $1.3 Million in financial assistance, to ensure each and every child is given the opportunity to learn, grow, and flourish. Today I am asking you to consider making a monetary donation to the event, to help ensure the Y can continue to provide these vital services to everyone in our community who needs help.
Since its inception in 2009, The Y Golf Classic has raised over $1,000,000 in net proceeds, with every dollar being put to work within our local community. By making a donation today, you're aligning yourself with one of the most recognizable charities in our city, and are joining together with community leaders from across our region.
If you’d like to participate on a larger scale, I’d be happy to provide a copy of the sponsorship package. Please note we do not sell individual foursomes for this tournament – all golfers are sponsors too.
Thank you for your consideration and generosity,
