Invest in Kids Celebrity Golf Classic
On June 13th over 200 golfers and celebrities spent a day at Clublink’s Glencairn Golf Club in Milton raising over $190,000 for Invest in Kids. No one seemed to notice the rain as they played golf with hockey greats such as Johnny Bower, Rick Vaive and Bobby Hull. Also among the over 40 celebrities were Canadian women’s hockey champions Geraldine Heaney and Sami-Jo Small, rower Marnie McBean and Olympic cyclist Curt Harnett who all came out to support Canada’s children.
Thank you to all our sponsors and golfers who made this year’s tournament a success. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Battle of the Brains®
On Thursday, April 21st, RBC Capital Markets beat out more than 50 teams to win the coveted championship cup in Battle of the Brains® 2005. Thanks to the generous support of all these teams, nearly $600,000 was raised in the 12th edition of this signature, black tie gala in support of Invest in Kids and its initiatives to help Canadian parents give their children the best possible start.
Coming in a close second was National Bank Financial while RBC Capital Markets also won the Wild Card Round and a BlackBerry® for each of its 10 team members. Sector winners include: Capital One Services, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, Ernst & Young, HP Canada and National Post.
For the game, teams of lawyers, traders, bankers, techies, accountants, marketing executives and other friends and supporters of Invest in Kids took the competitive spirit usually reserved for their business day into the evening to test their knowledge of Weird Science, Cartoon Classics, TV Tunes and more. The night's high point centered on the controversial question as to the number of fingers Mickey Mouse has on one hand. In a highly spirited and amusing exchange, the teams then debated whether or not he had three fingers and a thumb or four fingers.
Evan Solomon, host of CBC's Hot Type and co-host of CBC News: Sunday, was quizmaster and six well-known CBC personalities were each on the auction block to join the highest bidding teams. Joining us that evening were Dianne Buckner, Peter Keleghan, Eric Peterson, Carole MacNeil and Nancy Wilson.
Invest in Kids would like to thank the following companies for their generous support at this year's Battle of the Brains®.
