Dear Friend of Autism Ontario Kids (AOK) Camp,
We hope you are enjoying the summer and that you and your family are staying safe during these challenging times.
Since Ontario started to move through various ‘stages of opening’ in late spring, we have been in conversations regarding the viability of running our annual Charity Golf Classic. We ultimately decided the safety of our guests is more important than fundraising in this current environment.
We are happy to report that the revenue generated through your generous support from last year’s tournament helped to fund a summer Camp@Home program that consists of take-home kits (pizza ingredients, cookie decorating, etc.) and themed fun boxes. Additionally, the days are filled with zoom activities like dance parties, yoga, zumba, cardio, bingo, crafts and cooking. We even partnered with Willowgrove Outdoor Education Centre to do a weekly Drive-Thru camp with various activity stations where families can, one car at a time based on scheduled appointments, participate in fun programming while proper distancing.
Thank you for your generosity and loyal support of our annual golf tournament. We are hoping you will “save the date” of Thursday September 9, 2021 when we can, once again, be together for another splendid golf day at Cedar Brae Golf Club.
