Join me in supporting the 2019 Y Golf Classic!
For the last 6 years, Marathon Underground Constructors Corp has proudly 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, our participation means helping kids in our community through the Y Golf Classic. Last year, we took the next step and joined the Y Golf Classic planning committee. In fact Marathon’s Bob Watson is the committee’s co-chair this year.
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 $1.2 million 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. Last year alone, the Y Golf Classic raised $267,500 - to put that in perspective, that’s enough to send over 1,300 kids to the Y’s Camp Otonabee on the Ottawa River for a week, or to provide swimming lessons and water safety skills for over 650 kids who otherwise might never learn to swim.
You might be wondering why I choose to support the Y? 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.
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,
