Dave Gower Memorial Event 2014

Thursday, June 12 and Friday, June 13, 2014

Hosted by:   at the Grey Silo Golf Club

What is the OPA Foundation and why do they need to raise funds?

The Ontario Parks Association Foundation (OPAF) is a registered Charitable Organization. The OPAF has established a fund to provide financial support to our future professionals through bursaries and scholarships for educational purposes. The Dave Gower Memorial Event is the annual fundraiser that enables the OPAF to continue providing scholarship and bursary awards to deserving post-secondary students.


Why is the event called the "Dave Gower Memorial Event"? 

Dave Gower served his community as a municipally elected official in Huron County and he was a founding member of the OPA Foundation in 1990. It is because of Dave’s foresight and dedication to the cause of educating students in parks related areas that we have honoured his memory by naming this fundraiser the Dave Gower Memorial Event.
