The tournament was originally scheduled for August 21, but huge rain and wind storm forced postponement until September 18, 2018.

On behalf of the participants and tournament sponsor Enbridge, Michael Rosset, founder of HPG and the longest-serving board member of Raising the Roof, made the presentation to Raising the Roof’s CEO Michael Braithwaite, bringing the total raised through the annual event to $290,200. Since 1997, Raising the Roof has raised over $5 million for agencies working to reduce homelessness at the community level.

“We are grateful for the support of so many clients, suppliers and friends over the years, for such a worthy cause as youth homelessness,” Rosset said. “It is vital to find a solution with youth before the challenges become systemic and multi-generational. I also want to thank all our hard-working staff for executing such a fun, well-executed and successful event.”

This year’s event featured a special guest appearance by Pat Tabler, 60, who played second base for the Chicago Cubs and first base for the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, New York Mets, finishing his career as a Toronto Blue Jays. He is now a colour analyst for the Blue Jays on Rogers Sportsnet.

In his 11-year major league career, he had a batting average of .282, had 47 home runs and 512 runs batted in. Tabler was a member of the Blue Jays World Series championship team in 1992 and was a All-Star in 1987.

A total of more than 400 players on 24 teams took to the diamonds at Richmond Green in Richmond Hill for the fifth annual event, followed by dinner, networking and a cheque presentation to Habitat For Humanity.

For 33 years, it has be a joy to work in an industry with so many entrepreneurs and mavericks who embrace and celebrate new ideas and solutions. The support and friendship over the years has been extremely rewarding.
