After our defeat in 2016, we’re heading back to redeem our honour!
G4H = Games for Hope. This foundation has evolved to become one of the best bottom-line fundraisers in Montreal. Started in 2001 and grown at home, the foundation boasts an impressive target: less than 20% of donations should be used to finance event day so that 80+% makes it to the selected charities. So far, The Games for Hope Foundation has met that target with 80-90% of all funds raised reaching children’s charities every year.
In 2016, the sports event raised approximately $375 000 to benefit The Starlight Children’s Foundation – Quebec, The Breakfast Club, and Leucan. This year the beneficiaries will be: Breakfast Club of Canada, Leucan, and Giant Steps.
For the 5th consecutive year, participants will return to the Complexe Sportif Bell in Brossard. This multi-sport facility enables the offering of 5 team sports tournaments: volleyball, soccer, basketball, ball hockey, and ice hockey – ice hockey is played on the actual surface practiced on by our very own Montreal Canadiens.
Corporations are requested to register teams whose participants raise funds from within their own networks. The teams communicate their sport preference and the foundation takes over to organize the roster for Event Day. In an atmosphere of fierce, yet friendly, competition, this event enables The Games for Hope Foundation to practice its mantra and fulfill its mission statement:
Everybody wins: Raise awareness! + Raise Funds! + Have Fun = Helping Charities Help Kids!
Since 2001, almost $2 million dollars has been raised from both corporate and individual donations. All members of the Board of Directors are 100% volunteers, using their time, efforts and skill sets to ensure a successful event for the foundation.
With so many negative things going on in our world, we feel blessed to be able to participate in an event such as this. This year, the event goal is to raise a NET of $500K and once again, Total Wealth Management Group and HollisWealth, Lachine Branch will participate.
Save the date: Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Complexe Bell. We would love to see you there cheering us on!
