The heat and humidity may have been at record level highs, but
that was not enough to deter over 275 brave and benevolent individuals from
participating in Tarion’s 22nd Annual Golf Tournament in support of
The Children’s Wish Foundation on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.
Tarion has been a proud supporter of Children’s Wish since
1995. In 22 years, we have raised close
to $800,000 in donations, making us one of the largest single contributors to
this incredible organization.
We were very much looking forward to meeting Ashley at this
year’s event. Ashley is a delightful 11-year-old girl who suffers from a condition known as 14q deletion. Unfortunately, Ashley was unable to attend in
person. Instead, we heard from Ashley’s
mom, who told us about her daughter’s ultimate wish to go to Disney World. We were thrilled to learn that, with help
from donors like Tarion, Ashley’s wish will come true later this year. Knowing that we are helping to put a smile on
the face of a child with a life-threatening illness is as humbling as it is
This year, Tarion’s President & CEO Howard Bogach
presented Children’s Wish with a cheque for $30,000, a $10,000 increase from
last year. We attribute this exceptional
result to the spectacular turnout and generosity of all who attended. This donation will go a long way towards making
the wishes of other children like Ashley come true.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make this
year’s tournament such an incredible success.
We look forward to seeing you again next year!
