Community | Main St. Group sponsors the 2022 We Care Golf and Spa Golf Tournament
June 7, 2022 – Main St. Group is proud to be a two-time Bronze Medal Member Sponsor and one-time Silver Medal Member Sponsor, of the We Care Golf and Spa Classic that takes place on Wednesday June 8th, 2022, at the Cardinal Golf Club in King, ON.
We Care is a non-profit organization that enables kids with disabilities to realize their full potential by raising funds to send them to fully accessible Easter Seals summer camps through the collaborative efforts of the Foodservice and Hospitality community.
We Care is the largest annual donor of 16 Easter Seals Camps across the country. These camps ensure every activity on site is 100% accessible and range from land-focused camps to waterside oasis’. Each camp offers unique experiences that provide opportunities to learn new skills, try different sports and activities, and make life-long friendships. We Care’s funding helps provide parents and siblings with some much-needed respite and the peace of mind of knowing their child is well cared for.
Member Sponsors are made up of a network of companies from all facets of the Foodservice and Hospitality Industry that contribute financially, donate food and prizes, and volunteer their time at events. The financial contribution made annually by Main St. Group, and all other Member Sponsors, is enough to cover operating expenses, which means 100% of funds raised go directly to providing life-changing camp experiences for Easter Seals kids.
Main St. Group is proud to support this cause and help We Care provide opportunities for kids to focus on their disABILITIES – and have a fun summer camp experience just like any other kid.
