The Toronto Maple Leafs traded hockey sticks for golf clubs Monday as they teed off at the 2007 Leafs Fund Golf Classic presented by TD Waterhouse. Event proceeds benefited the Leafs Fund, the team's charitable arm.
Players and coaching staff were paired with Leafs fans and avid golfers as they navigated the terrain of the North and South courses of Angus Glen Golf Club, host site of the 2007 Canadian Open.
Golfers were treated to a memorable experience with an opportunity to golf and lunch with their favourite Leafs players, while off-course activities including a silent auction that raised additional money for the Leaf Fund.
The Leafs Fund Golf Classic remains one of the team's most popular charitable events and one that signifies the start of the NHL season is weeks away. The sold out event is also an example of the team's commitment to being leaders in the community and supporting worthy initiatives.
TD Waterhouse served as presenting sponsor of the Leafs Fund Golf Classic with Direct Energy as associate sponsor. 640 Toronto, Molson and Diageo also participated as event sponsors. Under Armour donated all golf apparel for participants and volunteers.
The Leafs Fund is committed to improving the lives of children and youth by providing access to sports and recreation opportunities that encourage health and wellness in our community. In its 15th year, the Leafs Fund Golf Classic has raised over $1 million for Leafs Fund charities.
