Our 2021 Dream Kids

Meet the kids needing your support

You know that the Golf for Kids Annual Charity Golf Classic is all about the kids. The reason we get together each year is to make a real difference to the lives of Vancouver Island children. Over the past 22 years you’ve helped us raise 7.9 million dollars which has directly benefited children’s charities, trusts and organizations – Thank You!

It’s our privilege each year to be able to introduce to you some of the kids who need your support. Like twins, Amelia and Keira, who want tools to support communication; or Salomon who needs surgery to help him to run and play with his friends; or Grayson, who more than anything wants to take a trip with his grandparents.
