A Heartfelt Thank you to all of you for a Successful 4th Annual Golf Tournament.

On September 11, 2012, School for the Children of the World celebrated the 4th annual golf tournament at the facilities of Nobleton Lakes Golf Club in Nobleton. It was a great success! The day couldn’t have been better; it was radiant with a nice cool breeze, the perfect day for golf. The energetic volunteers started to work early in the morning to make sure everyone had a good time. Thank you all for your volunteering time. Your contribution is very much appreciated. Special thanks to Pat van der Wolfand Cathy Papais for their continuous help from early in the year.

Everybody was in excellent spirits. We started the day with a delicious BBQ, salads and beverages, before the tee off. After a fun afternoon, we arrived at the hall for a delightful dinner. Our volunteers had a large table ready, with fabulous gifts from our generous donors, which we were able to raffle and sent home many lucky winners.

During dinner, our outstanding Golf Committee Chair, Robert Antonel, presented a large cheque to the SCW Canada President, Norman Grey Noble, in the amount of $95,000.00. Fantastic! Our hearts were full of joy because we know exactly where and how this money will be spent. Remember that, at SCW, from every donated dollar, 90% is going straight to the projects. This amount is matched by the communities receiving these projects and their municipalities. Norm received the cheque with great enthusiasm. In order to reassure the supporters of the SCW’s accountability, he went on to explain how this money will be spent and presented detailed information regarding the completed, current, and future projects.

In addition, the former President of SCW, Dylan Marando, and Director, Liam Mcguinty, talked about the importance of creating partnerships with our local schools. Dylan and Liam have been working together, visiting the local schools and creating awareness of the importance for Canadian students to help students in developing countries to obtain an education.

SCWCanada would like to take this opportunity to thank the vital and generous supporters, without whom this wouldn’t be possible:
Robert Antonel, the Golf Committee Chair; the Golf Committee; the outstanding volunteers; and the SCW members, for a fun, successful and enjoyable event. We encourage you to follow up with our projects and continue your participation, to help us provide the tools of education and together develop a better world for our future generations.
