High Fives for Kids was the big winner of the day at the Ontario division of the Automotive Industries Association of Canada’s annual golf tournament.
Another $15,000 was raised for the foundation, thanks to 136 golfers who came out for the day at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Georgetown, just northwest of Toronto. Another $1,000 was donated to High Fives thanks to Ramzi Yako of Promax, who gave his 50/50 winnings back to the foundation.
The event also saw 61 companies sponsor holes at the event – the most the tournament has ever seen.
High Fives is AIA Canada’s charitable foundation that raises money to support charities through grants and scholarships that benefit children and youth.
