The AJ Bay Foundation is committed to working with the Vancouver community to create awareness and improve the lives of those living with mental illness. The Foundation has been raising money through various events over the past 9 years, primarily for the BC Mental Health Foundation and the Vancouver Community College Music Program.
The Foundation was started in memory of Anthony John (AJ) Bay, to try to preserve his memory by giving back to the things that played such an important and positive role in his life.
Annual Golf Classic
In 2013, under sunny skies, the 1st Annual AJ Bay Foundation Golf Classic was held at the University Golf Club in Vancouver. The support was incredible and resulted in a $10,000 donation to Mindcheck.ca. The following year was an even bigger success, spurred on by a lively auction hosted by several Canucks Alumni. Following the 2014 Golf Classic, the AJ Bay Foundation proudly presented a cheque for $20,000 to the Canucks for Kids Fund in support of Mindcheck.ca.
The Annual AJ Bay Foundation Golf Classic is organized by a very dedicated group of volunteers, including:
Chris Koch, Director
Dominica Bay, Volunteer Manager
Pat Mahony, Sponsorship & Operations
Cameron McClean, Sponsorship & Operations
Claire McClean, Finance
Andrew Nelson, Webmaster, & Photography
Eric Benes, Sponsorship Coordinator
