On June 4, 2012, 80 foursomes, including the 2012 Toronto Blue Jays, coaches and World Series alumnus George Bell and Duane Ward, competed in the 17th Annual Charity Golf Classic, presented by Rogers, Cisco and Ericsson, at the Club at Bond Head in support of Jays Care Foundation.
To kick-off the day, each golfer was outfitted with custom New Era Blue Jays golf hats, Under Armour running shoes and drew from an array of fabulous foursome prizes as a thank-you gift.
After the round, golfers enjoyed the 19th Hole Reception emceed by Sportsnet's Buck Martinez. Guests had a chance to peruse the silent auction, mingle with Toronto Blue Jays players, coaches and alumnus while enjoying delicious food and beverages courtesy of Labatt and Vins Philippe Dandurand Wines. The Sportsnet 590 The Fan foursome shot a remarkable score of 56, and claimed the title of Tournament Champion!
The highlight of this memorable day on the links was raising more than $480,000 for the coast to coast community programming provided by Jays Care.
