Some of our wonderful third party fundraisers:
BrokerLink/Coldwell Banker Annual Charity Golf Classic
The BrokerLink/Coldwell Banker Annual Charity Golf Classic takes place in September at Guelph Lakes Golf & Country Club. Supporting the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph for the past 8 years, more than $46,000 has been raised through the hard work of BrokerLink Commercial Account Executive and the former president of the BBBSG Board of Directors, Matt Nelson, and current Board Director (and local realtor) Nick FitzGibbon. BBBSG would also like to extend a special thanks to BrokerLink’s insurance partners for their ongoing commitment to this event and the work we do. For more information about how to register for this event, contact the Guelph BrokerLink office at (519) 836-6100.
Skyline Charity Golf Classic
The Skyline Charity Golf Classic takes place in September in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph. This private, third party fundraising event, raises money for local youth service charities, and BBBSG is proud to have been selected as one of the key charities of choice for the past 12 years. We would like to extend a special thank you to Skyline’s staff, leadership team, vendors, suppliers, investors and donors for their ongoing support.
Guelph Santa Parade Run
Taking place in November each year, this 3K run/walk fundraiser sees participants kicking off the festivities at the Guelph Santa Claus Parade by running ahead of the parade in Santa suits. Presented in partnership with the Downtown Guelph Business Association and spearheaded by BBBSG Director Chris Moulton, this fundraiser is in its sixth year.
Downtown Guelph Exotic Car Show
The Prince Adventures Downtown Exotic Car Show takes place each year in the heart of downtown Guelph. Returning for its fourth consecutive year in 2020, this event has already surpassed $60,000 in funds raised for BBBSG, due largely to the commitment and leadership of local car group organizer, Jamie Prince, with sponsorship support from Moonwood Homes, the Crosby Auto Group and the Downtown Guelph Business Association. With Lambourghinis, Ferraris, a $1.2-million Porsche Spyder and a classic Delorean confirmed to return in 2020, this is a great opportunity for car enthusiasts to get an up-close look at some of the region’s finest luxury vehicles. Stay tuned for more details, including a confirmed date in the Fall!
Video Game On
An annual 24-hour online-streaming marathon event put on by the University of Guelph’s Electronic Gaming Organization (EGO) in support of our Game On! School-based mentoring program. EGO members stream video games for the full 24 hours while they solicit donations from the audience; people can also drop in to the event to play their favourite games on the many consoles that EGO sets up for those who prefer to donate in person.
Vet Frat Haunted House
The Veterinary Fraternity at the University of Guelph hosts a very popular Haunted House event for the community in support of BBBSG. Many of our Big Bunch Groups and Matches have attended over the years and had a great time. Along with the Haunted House they will also have cookie decorating, apple bobbing and face painting. Admission by donation.
