Official Sponsor and Partner of The Smilezone Foundation

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.

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!
