Some Fun Facts

Fund Raised

Ryan Ellis and Bobby Orr team up to raise over $100,000 for local Hamilton Kids

The 3nd Annual Ryan Ellis Charity Golf Classic proved to be another huge success raising over $100,000 to help local Hamilton area kids.

Golf 2018 was a great success, thanks in large to the support of hockey legend Bobby Orr. The majority of the proceeds from the sold out charity event are being used to purchase new playground equipment and re-develop existing playgrounds within the City of Hamilton through Ryan’s Elly4Kids Foundation. Golf 2018, held at Flamborough Hills Golf and Country Club, raised a whopping $103,000.

Ryan would like to thank Bobby, and all the sponsors, participants and volunteers who continue to make Elly4Kids a huge success.

Team Work Makes the Dream Work

We are seeking donations and items for our raffles and silent and live auctions. If possible, please consider donating your time volunteering on event day.
