Media Advisory - Round of Wishes presented by Air Transat

Hitting a Monster Drive to Grant a Kid a Wish

Is There any Better Feeling?

SURREY, BC, June 8 /CNW/ - You are invited to join us: The 5th Annual Round of Wishes Golf Tournament is coming on Tuesday, June 29th at Morgan Creek Golf Course. Designed by Golf Digest award winning architect, Thomas McBroom, Morgan Creek was selected by the PGA of BC 2008 as "Golf Facility of the Year."

The funds raised in this tournament go directly to grant the wishes of children in BC living with a life threatening illness. With our golfers' generous support our goal is to grant as many wishes in one day as possible.

Vancouver Canucks alumni will also be participating in the tournament, and the top fundraising participants will have the chance to be paired with them for the day!

That day is June 29, 2010.

Media are invited to attend.

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada

Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to 15,000 children and their families.

This year, the Foundation expects to grant 1,000 new wishes across Canada. The Foundation has never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family.

The Foundation is a grassroots charity with chapters in every province and territory. For information on Children's Wish, log onto www.childrenswish.ca.
