Toronto, ON, June 13, 2014 – The popularity of the Joe Carter Classic has never been stronger, attracting impressive celebrity and corporate support in its efforts to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Aid Foundation. For the fifth consecutive year, tournament foursomes and major sponsorship opportunities have sold out for the charity golf tournament that continues to attract top athletes, including NFL Hall of Famer, Thurman Thomas and NHL great, Martin Brodeur.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Thurman and Marty – two world class athletes – to join our event this year,” said Joe Carter, two-time World Series champion and event co-chair. “It’s an honour to host such an incredible group of talented sports icons and entertainers year after year who lend their star power to benefit a tremendously worthy cause, helping at-risk children and youth.”
More than 35 celebrity guests participate in the two-day golf event, including Ray Bourque, Bo Jackson, Ozzie Smith and Julius “Dr. J” Erving. Presented by BlackBerry, Canada Goose and TD Bank Group, the Joe Carter Classic also welcomes new key sponsors for 2014.
“We’re excited to have Facebook and Pepsico join us this year as supporting and beverage sponsors, along with our media sponsor, Sportsnet,” said James Dodds, TD Bank vice president and event co-chair. “It’s thanks to these organizations and this year’s more than 70 corporate partners that we continue to raise the bar on our fund-raising capabilities, which is nearing the $1 million mark in just five years.”
