Ottawa, ON – HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) is a non-profit organization launched 36 years ago by Fred Logan and his friends. They were inspired by Terry Fox to make a positive difference and chose to focus on helping neighbours in need. Their annual HOPE Volleyball Festival has grown into one of the world’s largest one day volleyball tournaments. Sutton Group - Premier Realty (2008) Ltd.* was proud to contribute the $905 entry fee for their team of 10 players.
“Sutton Ottawa recognizes that participating in community events is one of the most important things we can do as a company,” says Office Administrator Anik Lamothe. “Our team played in the corporate division, networking with other local businesses. We enjoyed every minute of the event knowing that our participation contributed to many local charities, including the Children’s Aid Foundation, Special Olympics Ontario, and the Ottawa Mission.”
Hundreds of people participated in this tournament at Mooney’s Bay Beach, with some players enjoying sand courts. There was a food tent as well as live entertainment by Cold War Kids, Yukon Blonde and many others.
“Throughout the day, the Sutton Ottawa team participated in a total of five matches and enjoyed a team lunch followed by a concert series,” says Anik. “Word has spread about this great experience. I am sure we will participate in the HOPE Volleyball Summer Festival 2019 and fundraise to further support HOPE charities.”
Since its inception, HOPE has donated more than 3.5 million dollars to over 110 charities in the Ottawa area. For more information, please visit: www.hopehelps.com.
