Raymond James Legacy Golf Tournament to Help End Homelessness

Raymond James Legacy Golf Tournament Has Goal of Helping End Homelessness in the Capital Region
“Next Friday’s Raymond James Legacy Golf Tournament is focused on making a positive, long-term difference for the community,” said volunteer organizer and Cool Aid board member Brad Clark. “The tens of thousands in profits will be split between Cool Aid’s campaign to build apartments for people who are homeless and Cool Aid’s Endowment with the Victoria Foundation.”
The third annual tournament on August 28 starts shotgun-style at 1:30 pm, at Bear Mountain’s Mountain Course (registration opens at 12 noon). A full round of golf and sumptuous dinner costs $160 and benefits Cool Aid programs. (Dinner by itself is $60.) The tournament is quickly selling out but there are still 20 tickets currently available at DriveToEndHomelessness.ca or by calling Renae at 250-383-1977.
A large number of corporate sponsors, many focussed on wealth management and estate planning, are supporting the Legacy Golf Tournament, including: $49,000 in hole-in-one cash prizes are offered by RBC, Vancity and Megson FitzPatrick; Two anywhere-we-fly, round-trip tickets from Westjet are up for auction; Original artwork for auction by local artists Robert Bateman (hand-coloured lithograph), Isa Milman and Carolyn Converse; and much more.
The Raymond James Legacy Golf Tournament is sponsored by many companies who help their clients grow their own personal legacy. The event is focussed on creating a lasting legacy for the entire community, by helping end homelessness and improving the lives of our most vulnerable neighbours in the Capital Region now and into the future.
The Victoria Cool Aid Society builds homes, lives and community. We create opportunities for people who are homeless or living in poverty. We make a difference through housing, health care, support and emergency shelters. Founded in 1968, Cool Aid helps over 9,000 people in the Capital Region every year, at 14 locations in Langford, Victoria and Saanich. The Society’s major new campaign is “Help End Homelessness”, to build an additional 360 apartments for people in the community who have no home.
