McFadden’s Movement is excited and proud to announce Skyjack as the presenting sponsor for the inaugural MM27 Celebrity Charity Classic, originally introduced in 2020, however rescheduled to Monday, July 26, 2021.
MM27 is grateful the event will remain at Cutten Fields, who has a team fully prepared for this year’s event with COVID-19 policies and procedures in place if needed, making the safety of all staff, volunteers, and golfers as our number one priority.
The tournament will feature a celebrity-style set-up, allowing golfers to register as a threesome, getting the chance to play with a celebrity! Golfers will also have the option to register a a foursome, without the celebrity add-on. Celebrities will include past and present Guelph Storm players, along with a few other special guests! Be sure to check out MM27’s celebrity page and social channels as names will continue to be announced leading up to the tournament.
“We are very excited to announce that the first McFadden’s Movement golf tournament will finally be happening this summer,” Garrett McFadden, founder of MM27, offered. “A big thanks to Cutten Fields for allowing the event to happen regardless with necessary policies in place, as well as a huge thank-you to Skyjack for coming on board as our presenting sponsor and for continuing to support our goal in raising awareness for mental health.”
As MM27 begins planning for the Celebrity Charity Classic yet again, it is more than evident that none of it would be possible without Skyjack’s unwavering support.
“Skyjack is pleased to be the title sponsor for the McFadden’s Movement Celebrity Golf Classic. Skyjack, Linamar, and myself personally have been behind Garrett and the MM27 team from the beginning of ‘The Movement’ and cannot think of a better time to reconfirm our commitment to supporting and raising awareness for mental health,” Ken McDougall, President of Skyjack, said.
All funds raised from the Celebrity Charity Classic will be in support of mental health resources.
