Blake Wolfe is an award-winning journalist and editor, who joined PAX after nearly 10 years in Canada’s newspaper industry. In addition to PAX, his work has been featured in publications such as the Metroland Media group of newspapers and the Toronto Sun.

Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children was the big winner yesterday, as TravelBrands hosted their third annual charity golf classic raising $182,500 for the hospital.

The tournament, hosted at Eagles Nest Golf Club just north of Toronto in Vaughan, welcomed golfers from the travel industry and beyond for a day on the links and despite the chance of thunderstorms, the weather cooperated for the tournament’s most successful year to date.

Following the tournament, golfers were treated to a dinner and silent auction hosted by PAX EVP & co-publisher John Kirk, along with guests from Sick Kids Hospital including Dr. Glen Van Arsdell, head of the hospital’s cardiovascular surgery department and 11-year-old patient William Cockwell, who has undergone multiple heart operations at the hospital since he was born.

Since 2014, the tournament has helped raise more than $446,500 for the hospital’s Labatt Family Heart Centre, generating $114,000 in 2014 and $150,000 last year.
