After an incredibly successful inaugural event in July 2021, raising over $18,000 for mental health resources, the Movement – with the support of Skyjack – is excited to make this year’s tournament even bigger and better for all.
The tournament will continue to feature a celebrity-style set-up, allowing golfers to register as a threesome, with the opportunity 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 other special guests. Be sure to check out the Movement’s celebrity page and social channels as names will continue to be announced leading up to the tournament.
Early bird registration for the tournament is now open and will be available until April 1. Registration will completely close on June 1, or when the tournament is sold out, whichever comes first.
“We are very excited to bring the McFadden’s Movement Celebrity Charity Classic back to Cutten Fields, once again with the amazing support from Skyjack and Ken,” Garrett McFadden, founder of MM27, offered. “With mental health resources still a top priority, we’re hoping to surpass the inaugural event’s total, making an even bigger difference.”
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.
“The past couple of years have highlighted and reminded many of us the importance of recognizing the need to have mental health resources available for those in need,” Ken McDougall, President of Skyjack, said. “Being associated with Garrett and the MM27 organization is a pleasure for us – helping raise awareness and resources for mental health should be a top priority for communities everywhere. We are lucky to have a passionate group in MM27 doing that right here in our community. I encourage everyone to get involved.”
All funds raised from the Celebrity Charity Classic will be in support of mental health resources.
