JFK Golf Tournament & Cycle Tour - Wednesday June 15th, 2016
On June 15th, the Just for Kids Foundation held its annual Golf Tournament along with the newest component of the event, the JFK Cycle Tour, at the prestigious Club Laval-Sur-le-Lac.
The golfers and cyclists were welcomed with a gourmet brunch at the clubhouse before setting out for a shotgun start to the day’s events. The golfers enjoyed refreshments, an abundance of snacks, and various contests as they made their way through the famous blue course, which was designed by the PGA tour’s Mike Weir. The cyclists selected one of two routes, 63km or 84km, as they were lead on a guided ride, enjoying the beautiful surroundings on their bikes. The participants met back at the clubhouse for cocktails and canapés, which included a delicious tartare bar by Le Pois Penché.
The evening culminated with a wonderful four-course dinner and a live auction hosted by Sportnet’s Chantal Desjardins. Event chairs were thrilled to present Just for Kids with a cheque for $220,000; a record amount of funds raised from this signature event. The proceeds will go towards JFK’s 2016 campaign, A Vision for the Future.
Thank you to the event committee, volunteers, donors, sponsors, golfers, cyclists, title event sponsor TD and top sponsors Aon, Dorel, Goldberg Wealth Management/ ScotiaMcLeod and Kaycan for making the JFK Golf Tournament and Cycle Tour an outstanding success.
