Fun had by all at golf social

During the evening of Saturday September 12th, members and guests got together to play some mini-golf and drive some golf balls at Northfield Golf Centre.  The bbq was fired up for some delicious hotdogs and sausages.  It was an absolutely gorgeous sunset while we socialized with friends and family.  A big thank you to Tony, one of our JCI alumni, for hosting the event.

JCI Branttord held it's first ever "Breakfast in Brant Park" fundraiser, on Saturday, July 11, 2009.

Mother Nature gave the organizing committee a sense of false hope, when Co-Chairs Ross Forsyth and Michelle Miller stepped out of their respective homes at 6 that morning, to find bright blue skies, a few white fluffy clouds and an already warm breeze in the air.  Just a couple of hours later, the original 'open air' serving site at Brant Park Conservation Area was set up, dark clouds rolled in, and everyone hustled to a sheltered area, moments before the sky opened up. 

"It was a surprise to look up all of a sudden to see the sky turn black, but as soon as we heard the thunder, JCI Brantford members were quick to tear down and set up again under cover" says Forsyth.  "But in true JCI fashion, we were able to make the move in under 10 minutes, and no one was the wiser- until now!" he finishes with a laugh.

All in all, Miller says, “ the event was a huge success- some people showed up, regardless of the rain, while others called the hotline to confirm we were going ahead.  The kids didn’t seem to mind the weather at all- we had a great entertainer singing and interacting with everyone with his puppet; the clowns were kept busy with face painting and balloon animals.  Once the rain let up around 9:15, the inflatable castle was opened up, and the kids had a blast in there.  With the rain, the slide turned into a mini waterslide- the kids were going in dry, coming out dripping!”

Event Sponsors, John Oddi and David de Dominicis from Royal le Page Action Realty, were also present, helping out and enjoying the morning.  Oddi spent the morning assisting the cooks at the Crown Verity tailgate trailer BBQ and watching the fun everyone was having.  “Next year, no rain!” was his remark, after stating he would gladly be back next year, supporting this great event, assisting in part the Charity of Hope.

A portion of proceeds raised from this year’s Breakfast will be going to the Charity of Hope, Brantford.  This group assists a large number of programs in Brantford, which all focus on kids.  JCI Brantford was proud to be able to help this group support the next generation.  To learn more about the Charity of Hope, visit their site at www.charityofhope.ca

For those who attended, THANKS!  For those who were unable to make it out, we’ll see you next year!

The 2010 Breakfast in Brant Park has been scheduled for Saturday, July 10, 2010.  We will be undercover again, in the “Parkview Pavillion” at Brant Park.  Please watch for more information; Tickets will go on sale in May next year!

 

Many thanks to all our sponsors and supporters;
