History

Golf for Kids started out in 1999 with a desire to raise money to help one little girl who needed a hand. The tournament raised over $14,000 that year and through the unrelenting commitment of organizers, sponsors, donors, golfers, partners, and volunteers, Golf for Kids has grown to become one of BC’s premier fundraising events each year.

The 2017 Golf for Kids Charity Classic marked our 19th year raising money and awareness for BC kids in need and their families. And we’re not done yet!

Here are some quick facts about our history, how we’ve grown, and who we support:
