The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation (TJSF) held its sixth annual Teeing off for a Miracle on Friday June 14th, 2019. The event raised $100,000 for Halton-based charities.
Dignitaries and special guests included Milton Mayor Gord Krantz, Milton MP Lisa Raitt, Milton MPP Parm Gill, Halton Deputy Chief of Police Nishan Duraiappah, Maple Leaf Alumni Peter Ing and Ric Natress. It truly was an international affair as players attending the event travelled in from different countries throughout the world.
“I am truly humbled by the support for this annual affair, which has become more of a reunion of great friends sharing the same vision of wanting to give back to society, TJSF President Tiger Jeet Singh Jr. said.
The tournament is in support of TJSF’s 11th annual ‘Miracle on Main Street’ toy drive charity event. This year’s edition is scheduled to take place December 9 here in Milton and Brampton, Ontario on December 11, 2019. Proceeds from the golf tournament will go towards the purchase of toys, food and life essentials for families experiencing hardship via the Salvation Army and Halton Women’s Place; children suffering from illness at SickKids and McMaster Children’s Hospital; and supporting local school initiatives such as mental health, breakfast programs, literacy and inclusive classrooms via the Halton Learning Foundation.
