A Proud Sponsor & Partner of Smilezone
Bachly Construction is very proud of our official sponsorship and partnership with the Smilezone Foundation. We dedicate our time and building resources to help create warm, inviting environments for kids in hospitals and treatment centre’s. The reality of a sick child is unimaginable, but Smilezone aims to make the process a little easier for everyone, “one smile at a time.” Through our renovations with Smilezone we take what typically would be a dark, scary place for families and turn it into a light, happy and entertaining space to help make a child smile during a difficult time. Many of these children don’t have the chance to act like a kid as much as they should.Their illness inflicts a reality that does not allow them to do so. Smilezone gives them a chance to play and laugh and enjoy themselves in an environment that normally isn’t a happy place.
Smilezone Makes Raising Funds Fun!
There are two annual charity events that help raise funds for the Smilezone foundation – the Celebrity Golf Tournament and the 24 Hour Hockey Tournament. Although you can donate and volunteer anytime, these events make fund raising interactive! If you are interested in learning more ways to donate to this foundation please visit https://www.smilezone.com/
2017 will be Smilezone’s 5th annual tournament. It is held at Rattle Snake Golf Course in Milton, Ontario. Celebrities including Adam Graves, PK Subban, Tie Domi and Max Domi have been at this tournament past years. Each group of 4 golfers are assigned a celebrity to golf with all day and enjoy a dinner afterwards. All proceeds go to Smilezone’s new projects. Bachly Construction has been a Gold Sponsor for this tournament since it’s inception in 2012. We look forward to seeing this years turnout!
This tournament happens in Oakville and Ottawa! There is over 150 participants each year at both events. The players compete in a 24 hour long tournament in order to raise money for Smilezone. This years goal is to raise $150,000 in donations. The Oakville tournament will be held at Joshua Creek Arena on April 28th-29th. The Ottawa tournament with be a the TD Place, the date has yet to be announced.
