Swing4Hope Golf Tournament
The Swing4Hope golf tournament was started with one goal in mind, to raise funds for Hope Place Centres. Since 2012, we have raised close to $300,000.
Beginning in 2016 the tournament has been run by a volunteer committee laser-focused on every dollar raised going to fund those who need support for their addiction. We have minimal expenses: the golf course, an auction company and gifts/prizes. Proceeds have been used to help men and women who are desperately in need of immediate live-in treatment but cannot afford to pay the whole $ 250-a-day fee. Who knows what would have happened to them if they didn’t receive the funding from the tournament. Here is just one note we received from a recipient: “I just want to say Thank you for being a part of my recovery. Today I celebrate 8 months of being clean. You truly helped save my life and for that, I am forever grateful.”
We have always been fortunate to host events with generous repeat golfers and sponsors and look forward to meeting new supporters every year. Each year a Hope Place Centre alumnus is invited to be a guest speaker at our dinner reception. At the 2016 tournament, our guest speaker said it best when she told us that so many people suffer from addiction and how connected we all are to this cause. She characterized herself as the face of those in need when she said I’m your daughter, sister, aunt, mother, wife, co-worker, student, next-door neighbour, etc. The need continues to be urgent to raise more funds each year to grow our support for this worthy cause. With your help, we raised $42,250 in 2022 and we look forward to partnering with you again in 2023.
The Hope Place team is made up of dedicated individuals who are leaders in the addiction treatment sector. These uniquely qualified professionals provide the right environment to help anyone struggling with challenges related to the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs. We work with other specialists in psychiatry, primary care and occupational therapy. We also work with practitioners from alternative healing arts, such as yoga instructors, art therapists, acupuncturists and spiritual guides. We aim to be the preferred provider of high-quality, gender-specific addiction treatment services, which is why most of the women and men who have completed our programs have found a new way of living and a freedom that enables them to reclaim their roles within their families, careers and communities.
