NAGA Participates in Stoffer Olympiad Fundraiser

Earlier this month, NAGA participated in a fundraiser hosted by Mr. Peter Stoffer, MP entitled the “Stoffer Olympiad” which featured a number of sports activities in his Parliament Hill office in Ottawa.  MPs and staffers attended the event, and each participant paid $10 to do the sports circuit, and all of that money will be going towards Canada’s Olympic athletes for this summer’s London games.  The event was a lot of fun, and was filmed by “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”, a highly watched comedy news program that airs nationally (click here to view the segment).  The event was also featured in MacLean’s magazine (click here to read the article).  NAGA donated a small putting green and a fun “Silence Please” sign, and all the participants really enjoyed it.  The event offered a great chance to raise the profile of golf, and NAGA representatives handed out information cards to all attendees explaining how golf is returning to the Olympics in 2016 and providing information on NAGA and golf’s impact on the Canadian economy.

NAGA representatives also used the event to meet with the Honourable Bal Gosal, Minister of State for Sport.  It was a great opportunity to touch base on how things are going for the association.  There was also an opportunity to personally thank Mr. Stoffer for appearing on Power & Politics where he spoke on the need to establish tax fairness for Canada’s golf industry, and he advised that he would continue to stand up for NAGA whenever possible.
