Andy Collins For Kids Funday Is…
An inspirational day filled with fun, laughter, and many unforgettable moments. Funday brings together people of all ages. Hundreds of golfers, bikers and dinner guests, local area businesses, and many Montreal community leaders attend this extraordinary day.
ACK Funday starts with golf registration and a well-attended brunch. Funday continues with a shotgun golf tournament complete with delicious food and ice-cold beverages to suite all tastes. Sponsored holes along with exciting and friendly competitions help make this a unique, fun-filled day on the course. We even get some golfing done and award amazing prizes for all kinds of efforts and skill levels
After golf and some relaxation time, attendees gather for the city’s most talked about cocktail hour together with a silent and amazingly entertaining live auction.
The day’s most anticipated event is the region’s greatest party! Dinner, music, entertainment of all kinds leads to “all out partying” being the tone for the year’s most unforgettable evening. You have to attend to understand exactly how and why Andy Collins For Kids Funday has been going strong for 20 years! Each year we welcome hundreds of friends, old and new, of all ages. We have strong representation from Montreal West, Montreal’s West Island, Montreal’s South Shore as well as Montreal’s downtown core. We also have loyal attendees from Vermont, Ontario, Western Canada, Europe and the Turks and Caicos.
Where do the Proceeds Go?
Did you know that the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation has described us as their Single Most Important community-based donor?
The MCHF will be the ongoing recipient of the proceeds of the Annual Andy Collins for Kids Golf Tournament. This milestone weekend event will be held at Le Manoir des Sables Hotel and Golf Club in Orford, on Saturday, July 8th, 2017. Thanks to our all-volunteer and no overhead policy, we have raised and donated over $3,000,000.00 for the Hospital.
Andy Collins for Kids directs the use of the funds raised by allocating 40% to the Andy Collins for Kids Endowment fund; 20% for happiness and fun – the sponsorship of terminally-ill children to partake in an “On the Tips of the Toes” wilderness canoe trip and funding of the Art Therapy, Music Therapy and Dr. Clown programs; 20% for education which has resulted in the establishment and maintenance of the “Andy Collins for Kids” cardiac surgical reference library, including computers and specialized medical software; and 20% for research including the funding of our special Children’s Brain Trauma Program.

2017 Funday: Wicki Wacki Waikiki!
Get ready to celebrate our annual Uncle Buck’s event on July 8 at Manoir des Sables. After last year’s 20th anniversary blowout event, we plan on going even bigger this time around, in true “Buckster” style! Grab your grass skirt and lei… we’re headed to Hawaii (via Magog)!
The Wicki Wacki Waikiki Funday will, of course, feature the usual favourites… with a Hawaiian twist. Gather your friends and family and register your foursome for the golf tournament, or take off with the cyclists to enjoy a ride through the Orford countryside. We’ll then kick off a night of fun with a cocktail party and auction, followed by dinner and dancing (until the wee hours of the morning!)
With your support, we can continue to make a real difference at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, as the stars are the limit with what we want to accomplish for these deserving children and their families.
