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.

“I am a huge fan of Golf for Kids and what this group of dedicated volunteers has done for the community for 22 years. What they give to Help Fill a Dream makes the lives of countless kids so much better as they receive things that they really can only dream about. They also help so many other local charities and events including the Golf for Kids Junior Pro Am at Uplands Golf Course as part of the PGA Canada DCBank Open. What really makes Golf for Kids special is that all the money raised goes to the charities they support.”
