FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THREE WISHES WILL COME TRUE AT PLAYING IT FORWARD FOR WISHES

Family event will raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario on July 24th

July 19, 2016 – OTTAWA, ON – Three local children will find out that their wishes will come true at the upcoming Playing It Forward For Wishes event on July 24th at Metcalfe Golf and Country Club.

The annual Golf and Fun Day for families aims to teach children the concept of “paying it forward” in the community. Parents and their children are invited to enjoy a day of golf and activities while helping to raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario.

Throughout the day, Make-A-Wish® will reveal three wishes and surprise each child with a presentation revealing that their wish will be granted by the charity. Each wish has been adopted by the Playing It Forward For Wishes organizers.

“We are thrilled with the participation of our community,” said Rob Howell, General Manager, Metcalfe Golf Club. “Golf & Fun Day keeps growing each year with involvement from local businesses and families contributing to this important initiative.”

There will be plenty for guests to do at the event. Golfers can choose between three, four, five and nine hole courses and kid-friendly activities will include rock climbing, Little Ray’s Reptile show, zip-lining, bouncy castles, parked emergency vehicles, and more.
