LEEDS AND GRENVILLE – The Eighth Annual TD Canada Trust Women’s Hockey Tournament for Girls Inc. held March 31st to April 2nd, 2017 was a smashing success! The weekend saw over 200 women hockey players, 21 local vendors, dozens of amazing volunteers as well as enthusiastic spectators support the work of Girls Inc. of Upper Canada. Sponsors, donors and players came together to raise over $16,500!
For the first time this year, we hosted a Vendor Fair on the Saturday featuring 21 local businesses. There was a lovely mix of quality-made products, sweet treats and services. The all-day Social which was supplied by the Whitewater Brewery Company was appreciated by players and spectators alike. The Saturday Night Social continued the fun established earlier in the day with Brother Jukebox DJ Services spinning some great tunes well into the night.
All proceeds will stay in Leeds & Grenville to ensure Girls Inc. can continue providing life-changing programs and workshops for local girls aged 6-18. In 2016, we inspired over 1,300 girls with support from fundraisers such as this annual tournament. Girls Inc. sincerely thanks all our sponsors, donors and volunteers for a job well done!
