Make-A-Wish Trees of Joy
November 20th, 2023
On Friday, November 20th, our team had the magical privilege of granting a wish with Make a Wish Canada participating in the Make a Wish Trees of Joy event at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. We were paired with a brave young boy named Damien and we designed a tree specifically geared to his interests and things that bring him joy. We heard that Damien was a Harry Potter fan and 6 of our team members worked together over the last month to put together a themed experience and a magical tree in his name. We were all deeply humbled to have this opportunity.
Thank you so much to Make-A-Wish Canada for all the hard work you do and the joy you bring all year long and especially at this time of year.

Orin Reid Memorial Golf Tournament
August 1, 2019
Since its inception 18 years ago, the Orin Reid Memorial Golf Tournament has raised over $1,000,000 in support of local charities, hospitals and children in need. This is all thanks to our golfers and our sponsors. We simply could not do it with out you!
The money we raise at this tournament always goes directly back into the communities we build in, and this year our focus is in support of Mental Health. Guelph General Hospital cared for more than 63,000 patients in its Emergency Department (ED) last year, in a space designed for 45,000. In fact, over the past five years, there has been a 37% increase in visits related to mental health and addictions. The Hospital has a plan to transform the care it is able to provide these patients.
Part of the plan will see the Hospital, working together with community partners, create new space for Emergency Mental Health Outpatient services. These services will act like a ‘step-down’ unit, providing prompt and short-term support, treatment and monitoring for people who don’t need to be admitted for care, but do need intensive follow-up. The services mean they go home feeling safe and supported, and reduces the likelihood that they come back to the ED.
We are excited to work with our community to improve life for those struggling with mental health and addictions issues.
Thank you again to all of our sponsors and golfers for joining us this year and for helping us to make a difference!
