Canadian Black Book held the 20th edition of its Annual Golf Tournament at Granite Golf Club in Stouffville, Ontario recently, raising over $34,000 on the day for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation in the process. Since the tournaments inception in 1997, the event has raised over $400,000 for the Foundation.

“Our tournament has become a favourite stop on the auto industry golf circuit and our golfers and sponsors continue to really step up, giving generously to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation,” said Brad Rome, President, Canadian Black Book.

The event hosted a sold out group of 144 golfers plus more guests at dinner. While the Scotiabank team of Ruth McBride, John Smith, Dave Klan, and Warrn Sandbeckx, came out on top on the links, the real winners are the children the Foundations activities support.

Ted Lancaster, VP & COO, Kia Canada Inc
Kia Canada Inc., along with Toronto FC, Toronto Community Housing and MLSE Foundation, launched KickStart for its sixth year at Kia Training Ground at Downsview Park.

“The opportunity to play, learn and grow as part of a team can make an enormous impact on a young person’s life as well as the community that he or she is living in,” said Ted Lancaster, VP & COO, Kia Canada Inc. “Kickstart teaches young people the values and confidence to want great things from their lives, and the skills to go out and accomplish them. That is why we have been part of this for the last six years and will continue to support this great initiative.”

KickStart is a eight-week soccer program, that allows 300 children (ages 6 to 12) to build soccer and life skills including, self-esteem, fair play and leadership for free. The programs are held at 16 Toronto Community Housing locations from August to October and have participants meet three times per week.


“We look forward to another year of the KickStart program with our incredible partners, Toronto FC, Kia Canada Inc. and Toronto Community Housing,” said Michael Bartlett, Executive Director, MLSE Foundation. “Through soccer, we have an opportunity to engage these youth and encourage physical activity as well as valuable life skills.”

At the event, participants in attendance received the special surprise of not only meeting but also learning skills from Toronto FC’s first team players.

“KickStart is one of our active living programs that build strong communities by teaching youth life lessons about teamwork, leadership and fair play, both on and off the field,” said Kevin Marshman, Interim President and CEO, Toronto Community Housing. “I thank our partners MLSE Foundation, Toronto FC and Kia Canada for helping youth who are living in our communities to develop the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential.”
