Here's how Jim, one of the sponsors, summed up his experience:

 

"Thanks for the invite to join your incredibly well run tournament and to be a part of this Children’s Wish campaign. There were a couple of times that there wasn’t a dry eye in a room full of male puck players! Great course, people and weather. You can count on Trevor, myself and The Rimrock every year. Really nice work!"

For those who have not heard our story, here is a short background of the PEI RumRunners:

 

In 1978, several individuals from The Island got lost on their way to Toronto and ended up in Calgary. Not knowing how to two-step, their evenings were mostly

uneventful, until several of them got together and formed a hockey team. Ice time was secured on Thursday evenings at the Seven Chiefs Sarcee Arena, which was home ice for the team until five years ago when we moved to the Edge School Arena in Springbank. Home ice is now on Sunday afternoons at the new Edge School Arena. In 2003, after 25 years, seven of the 15 original players were still with the team. At the completion of the team’s 39th year, two original members stubbornly remain.

Each Spring, after completing our season, the RumRunners would have a team golf day. In early 2006, Wayne Stewart, a fine lad and long time RumRunner from West Point, P.E.I. suggested that we should invite some friends and raise a few dollars for a worthy cause; this idea was the genesis of the PEI RumRunners Hockey Club - Charity Golf Classic.

 

In our inaugural year, after choosing the Children’s Wish Foundation as our worthy cause, a few of the guys visited their office. After this visit, the initial goal of $5,000 was raised to $25,000 once we saw other cardboard cheques posted on their wall. It was further decided that all funds raised would be evenly split between CWF Alberta and CWF P.E.I. With a lot of hard work, generosity and good fortune, $40,000 was raised the very first year!

 

After our 8th year & sitting @ $670,000, we set a new target of raising $1,000,000 for The Children’s Wish Foundation in 10 years.

 

In an effort to help us reach our $1M goal, we added the “Home From Away” Charity Golf Classic in P.E.I. in the summer of 2014 & raised in excess of $25,000. There was a Spring Kick-off Fund Raising Social added in Calgary in 2015 & these additional funds raised helped us Reach our Milestone Mark!!

 

After Eleven very successful “Fund Raising Years”, we have presented a grand total of over $1,100,000 to The Children’s Wish Foundation.

At approximately $10,000 per wish, that is 110 wishes that you have helped us to grant! Thank You for your continued Support!!!
