(KINGSTON) The Mortgage Professionals of Kingston are the title sponsor for the 4th annual charity golf tournament supporting the Down Syndrome Association of Kingston, Monday, June 26 at 1pm at Colonnade Golf and Country Club – 2789 Woodburn Road. All media is welcome.
The focus of the event is on local children with Down Syndrome. They are the “celebrities” of the tournament and will be on hand from 12:30pm onwards to sign their autographs alongside their pictures in the golf scorecard. A couple of particularly keen celebrities will take a chip or a put on the other golfers’ behalf during the round.
“We’re excited and grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community and to raise money to support those with Down Syndrome in Kingston. The best part of this tournament is the chance to meet the celebrities,” said the owners of The Mortgage Professionals.
The golf tournament is the main fundraiser for programs offered by the Down Syndrome Association of Kingston (DSAK), which include Swim Squad, Jungle Gym and Extra Awesome tutoring. DSAK is a local non-profit community support group for people with Down Syndrome and their families. They work towards inclusion and education about the needs of people with Down Syndrome, and provide counselling, relief, recreation and integration through social activities.
“The Mortgage Professionals’ support has been invaluable in creating and supporting this annual tournament. Their donation and the donations of all our sponsors and golfers will help DSAK provide support and encouragement for our individual and integrated programs. This event is a fantastic opportunity for people to see just how incredible our kids are,” said Jocelyn Agravante, President of DSAK and a local Nurse Practitioner who also has a 8-year old son with Down Syndrome.
Donations to DSAK can be made by cash or cheque to 364 Carrie Cresent, K7M 5X5 or online at www.dsak.ca/donate.
