4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament: Elmira Golf Club

$4,995 of $10,000 raised

In Nicaragua, over 40% of children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition and about half of Nicaragua’s workers are unemployed. We work hand in hand with local leadership to look at ways to help children and families survive and thrive in their communities.

In April 2016, I travelled to Jiquiilillo Nicaragua for the first time and returned in February 2020. I had the opportunity to meet some amazing people. My connection to Jiquilillo is stronger than ever and I am determined to help in every way I can.

This is where I need your help. I am happy to let you know that I am organizing the 4th Annual Speroway Charity Golf Event on May 30th, 2020 at Elmira Golf Club.

I am encouraging my family, friends and local companies to also get involved to support this great organization to continue their good work. Money raised, after event costs will support Speroway; a non-profit, charitable organization that has been providing access to emergency food to disadvantaged families globally and to vulnerable communities in Canada since 2004. This event specifically supports Jiquilillo Nicaragua which is a place near and dear to my heart.

My goal is to raise $10,000. Please consider supporting my fundraising campaign to help children and families in Nicaragua fight hunger, illness, and poverty.
