Mississauga, Ontario — July 24, 2012 — When it comes to keeping kids safe on our streets, you can depend on the Atlantic Group to step up and help get the job done. The company, which provides towing and collision repair services throughout the Greater Toronto Area, has long been a staunch supporter of Peel Children’s Safety Village. The most recent fundraising initiative undertaken by Atlantic was its 20th Annual Golf Tournament, which took place at Nobleton Lakes Golf Club in Nobleton, Ont.
The Peel Children’s Safety Village is an educational centre specifically designed for students from grades one, three and five. It features a main building with two classrooms, and a miniature town consisting of 17 scaled-down buildings, roadways, traffic lights and signs, an operational railway crossing and a school bus. After classroom instruction from uniformed police officers, the children demonstrate their knowledge of the rules of the road, using miniature electric cars, bicycles and their own two feet.
Over 250 Atlantic staff and partners came out to help support Peel Children’s Safety Village and play some golf along the way. The actual golf tournament itself was only part of the fundraising that day. After an exhilarating round on the links, attendees headed over to the beautifully appointed Riviera Parque in Concord, Ont. for a buffet lunch. Fundraising continued with a live auction, silent auction and raffle ticket sales.
