Equality means equality for everyone.
We just completed our third annual Healthy Fathers. Healthy Families Week and it was far and away the most successful to date. Every year we combine Men’s Health Week and Fathers Day to celebrate fatherhood, highlight the importance of father involvement in the lives of healthy children and families, and promote our programs and services.
In a two-part series we provide a multimedia-filled report for your enjoyment!
We start with the 2019 Charger Foundation Golf Tournament Fundraiser, which saw several new highlights and innovations, all in the interest of raising funds for the programs at the Canadian Centre for Men and Families.
This year we were honoured to be joined by emcee Roger Petersen, host of CityTV, who is very familiar with our agency from TV coverage he has provided us over the years. We were excited to offer a 2019 BMW for a hole in one, thanks to the sponsorship of Pfaff Automotive Partners BMW. And for the first time we added a live auction to the mix!
We are grateful to the many CAFE advisors, donors and members who supported the event as sponsors and golfers. Your contributions help us grow this unique annual event.
We want to highlight our appreciation for all the 2019 Charger Foundation Golf Tournament sponsors. Please take a moment to review the sponsorship list below and familiarize yourself with these generous companies and individuals.
But first, we hope you enjoy the following photo highlights.
