We had such a fun time recently at the Joe Carter Classic Summit Suite VIP event in Toronto at the Rogers Centre. Though the Toronto Blue Jays got trounced 11-4 by the Atlanta Braves, a great night was had by all, and the interactions we had with the 9th annual Joe Carter Classic Golf Tournament players Grant Fuhr, Damon Allen, Sterling Sharpe, Kelly Sheehan, Jana Webb, Victor Green, and the star of the night, Mike Krushelnyksi, who not only told us that Brief Take was his favourite interview, but we saw that he bid on multiple items at the silent auction and was posing for selfies with practically everyone. If the Summit Suite event was this much fun, we can only imagine how amazing the golf tournament was. All-star Joe Carter really does bring in some legends and true players, on and off the field.
This year’s event celebrates the 25th anniversary of Joe Carter’s World Series-winning home run. To date, the tournament has raised over $2.5 million, in support of the Children’s Aid Foundation’s Joe Carter Family Support Fund and the Joe Carter Scholarship Endowment Fund, along with additional local children’s charities.
Here are some of our personal highlights from the evening’s fundraising event:
