AOA Golf Tournament Partners with the NSA & NZ Foundation

(Collingwood, ON) May 9th, 2019 –   On June 14th Alpine Ontario, the National Ski Academy and the Nik Zoricic Foundation (NZF) invite all AOA members, friends, family and corporate partners for a day of golf and fun at the Bonaire Golf Club. The 2019 tournament represents the first time the three organizations have worked together on a fundraiser in support of high-performance athletics and athlete safety.

Bill Reeves current Manager of Partnerships & Events and incoming Executive Director at Alpine Ontario comments. “Last year the tournament was a great success working with the Nik Zoricic Foundation and we’re thrilled to welcome the NSA into the fold. In the past, all three organizations hosted their own tournaments which put pressure on our members – this way we can all go to the same event and have a stronger tournament.”

A key part of the golf tournament will be the exciting conclusion to the 2019 Rossiter Raffle program that will include the classic Rossiter 17 Closed Deck Runabout Powerboat valued at over $48,894 (includes a 90HP Yamaha motor)  on-site at the clubhouse where the draw will take place. To date, just over 700 tickets have been sold which gives the golfers a very good chance at buying a last-minute ticket to win. These boats are Canadian made from their home base and production facility in Markdale, ON

 “The boat will be on site for golfers to enter the draw if they’d like” Said Rossiter Boat Company CEO & Owner Scott Hanson. “Of course, I’m very biased about how lovely this boat is! Our hope is for this program  to raise significant funds for a great cause including supporting athletes at the NSA and AOA and funds for Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO).” Get your tickets here>
