CHATS Celebrates Ten Years with Ambassador Tim Jones
The 10th Annual Tim Jones Charity Golf Classic #drivesfordrives
CHATS- Community & Home Assistance to Seniors is celebrating its tenth annual charity golf tournament with Ambassador Tim Jones.
CHATS acknowledges and thanks Magna International Inc. for its continued support as the Presenting Sponsor since the first tournament in 2014. CHATS also thanks Bazil Development, City of Richmond Hill, and Backyard Pool & Spa for being a part of the Annual Tim Jones’ Charity Golf Classic since the beginning.
The Tim Jones’ Charity Golf Classic has had such a tremendous impact on our community, in supporting seniors to live at home, safely and with dignity. To deliver more meals and provide transportation to more medical and hospital visits, we have launched our 2023 #drivesfordrives campaign. This campaign aims to raise $70,000 to purchase a wheelchair accessible van.
CHATS Ambassador Tim Jones is a champion for seniors across York Region & South Simcoe. He is a founding co-chairperson of the Character Community York Region Council, a designated member of the Ontario Municipal Management Institute, and was a member of the Society of Directors of Municipal Recreation of Ontario. Tim has been instrumental in raising funds to support local charities and causes.
Tim retired from CHATS in 2018 where he was the Director of Development but continues to serve as an Ambassador with Neighbourhood Network, a service that facilitates innovative volunteer opportunities in and for Newmarket and Aurora. He also serves as a resource for the Character Community York Region and serves on several local community event committees.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating this anniversary of an event that has grown over the last ten years,” says Christina Bisanz, CHATS CEO. “It not only provides CHATS with an opportunity to raise funds to support much needed transportation services for older adults in our community, but it also gives us a chance to raise awareness of the importance of CHATS’ services, to enable seniors to age with dignity in their own homes,” she added.
This year’s event will be held at Mill Run Golf Club in Uxbridge on September 14, 2023. Golfers will receive a hot breakfast buffet, 18 holes of golf with a power cart, BBQ lunch buffet, dessert & coffee.
Tournament contests include Top Foursome, Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Putting Contest, Chartwell Purple Ball Challenge and Most Honest Foursome and a chance to win a New Mazda at the Hole in One contest sponsored by The NewRoads Automotive Group. Back by popular demand is CHARTWELL’S Purple Ball Challenge. We have added a new putting contest sponsored by The Big Ball Golf Company.
