Charity Golf Tournament a Swinging Success

On June 18th snapd Oakville hosted its 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Piper’s Heath Golf Club supporting the Oakville Hospital Foundation and Easters Seals Ontario. Despite dire weather predictions the golf gods were on our side, and the rain that fell didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits!

As the presenting sponsor, the Dan Cooper Group would like to extend a special thank you to all the sponsors, silent auction donors, and volunteers – without them this event would not have been possible. A big thanks to all the golfers for their support and generosity in helping to raise much needed funds for these two great charities. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We are thrilled to announce that a whopping $25,000 was raised this year, surpassing the impressive $20,000 that was raised in 2017.

Both the Oakville Hospital Foundation and Easter Seals Ontario contribute to our communities in very significant and meaningful ways. From funding skilled, compassionate care and medical equipment to providing programs and services to children and youth with physical disabilities across Ontario helping them achieve greater independence, accessibility and integration, these organizations enrich lives and the fabric of our communities.

We believe in the power of communities and the people who live in them. At the Dan Cooper Group we support organizations that enrich and strengthen our local communities and we dedicate time and money to causes that matter to us!

Boat Rally for Kids with Cancer in support of SickKids Foundation

For the fifth year in a row we will be participating in and raising funds for a cause close to our hearts – The Boat Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup in Muskoka on July 27th and 28th. Since its inception, annual events in Toronto and Muskoka have raised more than $19,000,000 for children’s cancer research treatment and care at SickKids.

This year a portion of the proceeds will go towards Camp Oochigeas which is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences.

At the Dan Cooper Group we are philanthropists at heart and are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Last month, for the second year in a row, we were the presenting sponsor of the 4th annual Snapd Oakville Charity Golf Tournament in support of The Oakville Hospital Foundation and Easter Seals Ontario.

From school fun fairs, The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton and The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts we are constantly giving back and supporting our local communities.

When we come together and choose to fight children’s cancer, we are making a difference in the lives of children currently in the battle for life. The Boat Rally for Kids with Cancer raises funds for researchers to continue their groundbreaking and lifesaving work. Huge strides have been made, but there is still very important work to be done.
