Begun in 1922 with the goal of treating children with physical disabilities, Easter Seals Ontario launched its premiere public information campaign for the universal pasteurization of milk to prevent the spread of tuberculosis. Over the years, the organization has hosted fundraisers, provided fully accessible summer camping programs for children with physical disabilities, and established a treatment and rehabilitation center for those children.
One of the fundraising events hosted by Easter Seals Ontario is its annual Canadian Computer Charity Golf Classic. The 2016 event, which was the organization’s 32nd, occurred on September 8 at The Country Club in Vaughan, Ontario. Typically selling out every year, the golf event hosts a maximum of 304 golfers, many of whom represent more than 100 leading corporations from the United States and Canada. Since it began, the golf classic has raised more than $5.4 million for Easter Seals Ontario and the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
