More Than Child's Play: Engaging Youth in Philanthropy
More Than Child's Play: Engaging Youth in Philanthropy: With the help of his dad and his friend Blake's dad — who happens to be NHL Hall of Famer Paul Coffey — the first Feel Like A Pro Day took place in June 2011 and raised $200,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. This past November, that accomplishment won him the Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy Award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Greater Toronto Chapter. There are plans to expand to other parts of the country, develop a "tourney in a box" kit, and more actively recruit young female players.
