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

I would like to see every kid have the same opportunities I was given while growing up. Now I have the opportunity to give back through my charity Elly4Kids.
