Legacy Golf Tournament Raises Over $26,000

July 18, 2017 – This year’s Legacy Golf Tournament raised over $26,000 last Friday, thanks to our sponsors, auction donors, players and the hard work of the organizers from Hatch & Muir, Raymond James and Cool Aid. (The Legacy Golf Tournament brings together advisors in the financial industry with their clients and Cool Aid supporters for a fun day of golf and feasting at Bear Mountain.)

50% of the proceeds will help pay for new housing for people without homes and the other 50% will be invested in Cool Aid’s Endowment Fund to help pay for support services for our clients in perpetuity.

A huge thanks to Dave Fracy who organized the tournament and whose firm Hatch & Muir was the Presenting Sponsor, and a special shout out to tournament founder and sponsor Raymond James and Brad Clark.

Leslie Varley, Director

Leslie, a member of the Killer Whale clan of the Nisga’a Nation, was the Director, Indigenous Health at British Columbia’s Provincial Health Services Authority, advising the 18 highly specialized care agencies on access to culturally appropriate services.

With Cheryl Ward she co-led the highly successful San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training programs with 27,000 Canadians trained so far. Through San’yas, Canadians have opened their eyes, often for the first time, to historical and ongoing colonial racism experienced by Canada’s indigenous people. Due to high demand for the program, San’yas has expanded nationally into sectors beyond health, including child welfare, youth services and justice.

Since May 2016, Leslie has been the Executive Director, BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres.

Her formal education includes an MBA from Simon Fraser University.

A committed advocate, Leslie works to transform Canada’s colonial attitudes and treatment of indigenous people.

In addition to being a director, Leslie is a member of the Board’s Planning & Governance Committee.
