Make a difference in a child's life
Help Fill A Dream Foundation
Every day kids have the opportunity to dream, but it’s not every day that those dreams are fulfilled. Help Fill a Dream cares about making dreams come true for critically-ill children on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
Golf for Kids is proud and humbled to have been associated with Help Fill a Dream since our very first fundraising event in 1997. Ours has been an incredible partnership for over two decades.
Well over 50% of all Dreams filled, and assistance provided to Island children and their families, is a direct result of the generosity of Golf for Kids supporters.
Children deserve a chance to simply be kids, and their parents deserve a chance to be mom and dad – not just caregivers. By working together we can continue to transform your generosity into support that makes meaningful impact on the lives of these kids and their families.
“Each and every year, the incredible people at Golf for Kids – players, volunteers, sponsors, and special guests – surprise us with the extent of their generosity and thoughtfulness. It just keeps getting bigger and better. Our growth is intricately linked to the success of Golf For Kids. We have grown up together and assisted thousands of Island children as a result. In addition to the money raised, the whole team at Golf for Kids provides us with support, encouragement and inspiration throughout the year.
– Craig Smith, Help Fill a Dream Foundation Executive Director
About Help Fill a Dream
Helping families face challenging situations
Help Fill A Dream Foundation often comes into the life of a family when things are at their worst. When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition a family’s focus becomes their child, their medical appointments and treatment; there’s no time for anything else. Since 1986 Help Fill a Dream Foundation has been supporting those families from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands whose lives have suddenly changed due to their child’s diagnosis with a medical condition or severe health challenge.
“Golf for Kids matters because in an age of abundance, distribution is not equal. The organizers of this event play a role in the redistribution of people’s heart and soul for kid’s happiness and community development by enriching young people’s lives, along with their families. The generosity of Vancouver Island businesses and the people they employ has been entrusted to Golf for Kids to make a real impact – and they’ve lived up to that lofty aspiration for 24 years and counting. Let’s make the 25th Anniversary Tourney the biggest year of GIVING yet!”
