Big Brothers Big Sisters: $7000 total donation including 2 sets of Storm season’s tickets and a choice of scarf or hat for guests.
Great to hear from you and thank you for reaching out in support of BBBSG once again. We are honoured to have been selected by you and your team. The tickets were such a hit with our Bigs & Littles last year and the donation enabled us to serve more children in need here in Guelph. Thank you again for this kind and thoughtful support.
I was wondering if you and the tournament organizers have an email address? As part of our stewardship plan here at Big Brothers/Sisters, we like to share information with our generous supporters like you and show them how their donations have translated into positive impacts on kids. We’ve already served more than 450 local kids this year thanks to you! Cheers!

Guelph Hospice: $4500 cash donation towards compassionate care for families in need.
I have been meaning to write you to thank you so much for your commitment to us last year with the money raised from the golf tournament. I would like to explain some very impactful moments this money made on our residents and their families. It actually brings tears to my eyes when I am writing you as this is so meaningful to how we can help to change that experience for people at the end of life.
The money donated has helped a young family with small children to be able to have a baptism celebrated here at hospice of their young child who otherwise the father who was dying would not have been witness to. We helped them celebrate with cake and treats after this special occasion. We have had about 35 people that have enjoyed haircuts and styling which brought so much joy so their last days they could feel they looked their best. One family had a photographer come in and take those important pictures that never could have happened. Some of the ladies had manicures and pedicures which couldn’t have happened without your help. The staff have been so grateful to you for building a compassionate fund to assist us in bringing some joy to someone’s last days. We have celebrated many birthdays and anniversaries as well as making legacy boxes for residents to make for children and grandchildren that will be a fond memory for many years to come.
We thank you for allowing us a chance to make a difference in a very concrete way. I am sure your father would be very proud of the many ways you have helped us. On behalf of all the staff we thank you for choosing our charity to truly assist us to bring a smile or build a memory for someone that does not have time on their side.
