Took this video on Thursday, June 11, 2010 when MonsterMortgage.ca participated in the Genworth Financial Canada Golf Tournament at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada. In addition to having a great time golfing with Don, Vince and Roula, this is a great event that we have had the pleasure of supporting over the past couple of years. In this video, kiki Sauriol-Roode (a VP and class act from Genworth) along with Trish Rivers from the Make-A-Wish Foundation® talk about the great success of the tournament which raised over $8000 for a great cause.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada is a dynamic wish granting organization that brings hope, strength and joy to children across Canada living with life-threatening medical conditions. Along with the national office, seven independent regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Canada® is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 225,000 children since 1980.

The sound in the video is not that great (that is what you get when I film the videos rather than Abigail in our office) so Abigail called Trish to get an extra sound bite from her…again great event for an even greater cause. Looking foward to supporting it again next year.
“I was honoured to atten Genworth Financial Canada’s 11th Annual Charity Golf Tournament last week with one of our wish families” said Trish Rivers. “Together, we were able to share the power of a wish® with a room full of very caring people, with the wish mum also sharing her family’s touching wish experience, made possible in part thanks to Genworth’s continued support. It was touching to see the effect the wish family had on everyone. We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from dedicated donors like Genworth Financial Canada, their associates and partners. Together, we are able to continue creating hope, strength and joy for our wish children and their families facing difficult times.
