The Golden Game was...
...an event held across the Greater Toronto region that brought together a network of 100 bars to watch the triumphant Olympic Gold Medal men’s hockey game. It signaled the official launch of The Golden Path charity foundation.
The signature location was at The Great Hall on Queen Street West where prominent Toronto politicians, business leaders and friends all gathered to cheer on Team Canada. Local and national media broadcast live from The Golden Game’s Great Hall location.
In addition, the four front-runner candidates for Mayor of Toronto were in attendance (or sent a representative as in the case of George Smitherman) to introduce themselves to the crowd and help raffle away prizes.
The Golden Path seeks to provide access to organized sports for children as well as an online mentorship program to guide development with feedback and coaching in addition to funding.
The belief is that through organized sports children acquire self-esteem/empowerment, physical fitness and learn team-dynamics and discipline ultimately supplying them with the life tools to enrich their quality of life, winning more Gold Medals for Canada and making us all proud.
The two official recipient charities for The Golden Game were Right to Play Canada and Canadian Athlete's Now Fund.
Event organizers at UCC Charity Hockey Tournament: Elizabeth Phipps, Denise Robinson, Ali Alaywa, Mike Stern, Ryan Hobson and Scott McDonald
