Despite the grey sky and heavy rain, JLL Canada and its industry partners teed off for the 2nd annual JLL Golf Tournament on September 19, 2022, in support of Breakfast Club of Canada. Held outside of Calgary, Alberta, the event is just one of the ways the partnership provides resources and funds to help feed school kids across the country, one breakfast at a time.
As JLL Canada’s national charity of choice, Breakfast Club of Canada received all the funds raised through the tournament. In addition to the contributions made as a result of the friendly rivalries on the links, a $10,000 donation to the Club was at stake. The skill-testing challenge for the 24 golfing pairs: get a hole-in-one at a location, supervised by Breakfast Club of Canada staff. Unfortunately, the $10,000 donation remained unclaimed with many of the shots landing far away from the green or even in the water, although a few did come close!
Events such as these highlight how BCC’s corporate partners work together to create environments where all children have the nutrition they need to succeed. Funding for equipment and food is just one of the ways these tournaments help BCC programs. BCC is a proud partner of JLL Canada and its commitment to ensure that students can access a healthy breakfast at schools in Calgary and across Canada. Since 2015, JLL Canada has raised $554,000 for BCC. The long-standing partnership between BCC and JLL Canada was recently extended for another five years, which highlights the organizations’ continued collaboration. In a speech after the tournament, Ryan Haney, Executive Vice President of JLL Canada, emphasized how the event brings Calgary’s real estate community together around a worthy cause — feeding kids and nourishing their full potential. As inflation continues to take a bite out of many families’ and schools’ food budgets, strong partners like JLL Canada enable BCC to continue making quality school nutrition programs available across the country.
