GMSPC Attends the 8th Annual Christie Lake Kids Golf Tournament
On August 14, 2019 Daniel Faubert, GMSPC’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, joined Brad Ezard from Keynote Search, Tom Rankin from Lecompte Electric, and Shah Khosraviani from Environment & Climate Change Canada, at the 8th Annual Christie Lake Kids Golf Tournament at Emerald Lake Golf Club.
An estimated 15% of children and youth in Ottawa live in a low-income household, which amounts to over 32,000 young people across the city. Christie Lake Kids helps these young people “build essential skills and become more resilient – capable of coping and learning despite adversity in their lives.” Christie Lake Kids allows more than 600 kids from low-income families to attend after-school and weekend programs like Art, Music and Hockey at inner-city community centres and spend two weeks every year at Christie Lake Camp in Perth. All of their programs are offered free of charge, with all supplies and transportation included!
Between 2012 and 2018, the annual Christie Lake Kids Golf Tournament has raised over $400,000 from supporting golfers, sponsors and volunteers!
Congratulations to Christie Lake Kids, their sponsors and hard working volunteers on organzing another memorable and successful golf tournament.
