Cancellation of 2020 Golf for Kids Charity Classic

Due to the public health concerns as well as government recommendations surrounding COVID-19 and large public gatherings, the Golf for Kids Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Golf for Kids Charity Classic, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 12, 2020.

Planning was well underway for this year’s tournament and we deeply regret having to cancel the event. Our number one priority is the health and safety of the public and our community – the golfers, sponsors, volunteers, hotel staff, and everyone involved in the event. 

The Committee is working hard to find alternative and creative ways to support the Golf for Kids and the various charities this year, including a virtual 2020 event, and will communicate additional details as they become available. 

ICONIX Waterworks Withdraws as Title Sponsor

ICONIX Waterworks is also announcing today that it is has made the difficult decision to withdraw as title sponsor for the Golf for Kids event. 

“The Golf for Kids Charity Classic and the recipients of the fundraising efforts hold a special place in all our hearts, however, ICONIX’s mandate moving forward is to diversify our fundraising efforts and support charities and organizations across North America,” explained Tony Codispoti, VP and COO of ICONIX Waterworks Canada.

“Although the decision was difficult to permanently remove ourselves as title sponsor, please know we truly understand the impact of what this may have on the tournament and the recipients of the charity,” added Tony Codispoti. 

The decision comes at a difficult time given the current COVID-19 situation, however, ICONIX’s focus and number one priority during this time is keeping our employees, customers, vendors, and communities safe and doing what we can to contribute to the containment of COVID-19 is always at the forefront of our minds. 

“On behalf of ICONIX, I would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone that has been involved in making Golf for Kids a huge success over the past 21 years. We truly appreciate the time, dedication, and generous donations from all of the volunteers, sponsors, and participants. With your help, we have made a significant difference and impact in the communities across British Columbia. And a special thank you to the Golf for Kids Committee for their extraordinary leadership over the years,” said Tony Codispoti.
