2019 Coast Capital Savings Charity Golf Tournament

The 18th Coast Capital Savings Charity Golf Tournament continues an annual tradition that brings together our business partners, our members and the community to raise money for VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation . Over the years, thanks to your support, we have raised more than $2.8 million for research into depression and mental illness, including a record $300,000 at last year’s event.

 

Funds raised through this tournament help drive innovation and cutting-edge research into depression and mental illness, which afflicts more than 140,000 children and youth in British Columbia alone. Nationwide, 10 to 20 per cent of Canadian youth are affected by mental illness, and 3.2 million Canadian teenagers are at risk of depression.

 

At Coast Capital Savings, we want to help youth achieve financial independence and that includes young Canadians struggling with mental illness. Through our golf fundraiser, we’re making it possible for them to break out of the shadows of stigma and to achieve mental wellbeing. In addition, recovery will put them in a better position to work on their financial future so they can achieve what’s important in their lives.

 

That’s why your support for the 2019 Coast Capital Savings Charity Golf Tournament is so important. With your generous involvement, we have the opportunity to unlock the promise and potential of young people faced with mental illness, empowering them to contribute fully to their generation. Let’s make this another great year of golfing for a truly great cause!
