Victoria’s Golf for Kids fundraiser goes online for 2020

Charity golf tournament continues raising money to fulfill dreams of kids with health challenges

The Golf for Kids Charity Classic has a 25-year history of raising funds to make dreams come true for children facing significant health challenges.

With COVID-19, organizers took the 2020 annual golf tournament campaign online. The wishes of this year’s 15 “dream kids,” aged six to 18, range from dream vacations to Disneyland and having their own therapeutic hot tub to experiencing a meet and greet with Billie Eilish.

To help meet the goal of granting these wishes, a virtual silent auction has been underway since Oct. 16, with bidding open on a variety of donated items, including a lifetime membership at Bear Mountain Golf Club, a Pebble Beach golf extravaganza, a Toronto Raptors package, a Canucks VIP experience and more. Bids can be made at bit.ly/3dOOHWR until 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25.
