The 2017 VIP Reception was held at The Rogers Centre on Wednesday night, followed by The Joe Carter Classic After-Party, featuring DMC and a special performance by Arrested Development, on Thursday night at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton. Some of the Attendees for the VIP Reception and After Party included sports legends John Stark, Dan Marino, Dave Stewart, Grant Fuhr, Julius ‘Dr J’ Erving, Spudd Webb, Barry Larkin, Ozzie Smith and Neil Smith. Guests had the rare opportunity to party with the who’s who in the sporting world, the Hip Hop community and local celebrities, making these two parties among the hottest events of this summer.


In addition to access to the celebrities, Toronto locals enjoyed a spectacular show with plentiful drinks and food for refreshment. The annual Joe Carter Classic charity golf tournament pairs golfers with top name celebrities from the worlds of sport and entertainment. Proceeds from the event go towards supporting the education and development of Canadian youth through the Joe Carter Scholarship Fund and the Joe Carter Family Support Fund.

Since 2010, the Joe Carter Classic has raised and pledged $2,500,000 to benefit the Children’s Aid Foundation and other children’s causes. The Foundation is Canada’s leading national charity dedicated to improving the lives of our country’s most vulnerable youth – those who have experienced abuse, neglect, and abandonment. With the support of generous donors, it has been helping children reach their potential against all odds since 1979. Last year, a wide range of high–impact programs and services have transformed the lives of over 23,000 children and youth.
