GENTLE BEN

The ultimate golf & sports getaway in support of cancer research & support programs

Over the past 20 years, this event has raised more than $1.6 million to fund cancer support and research programs. 

So, how does the Gentle Ben raise money? Anyone who has been on the trip before knows that the cost to the golfers basically covers our air, hotel, golf, and entertainment expenses. The actual funds for our beneficiaries come from corporate support, and mostly from the personal fundraising of our golfers.

We ask each golfer to try and raise a minimum of $1,000. Year after year, by approaching family, friends, colleagues, and business contacts, and through their own generosity, our golfers have come through bigtime. We can’t do it without you, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The Gentle Ben Charity Challenge is administered through Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation, which allocates funds to our designated beneficiaries.
