AFS FOUNDATION EVENTS
The Foundation engages in fundraising activities and events that ensure community respect and support for children with mental health problems.
We run a number of events throughout the year. The Great Escape Dream Draw is our Truck and Trailer draw happening between March and May and we hold our annual Golf Fore Kids Charity Tournament in September.
Foundation staff is always busy planning the next big event for the Foundation. For more information or for how you can help please call the Foundation at

The Great Escape Dream Draw
AFS Foundation is holding the first sanctioned duathlon right here in Sault Ste. Marie. Spearheaded by Sonny Spina, the events will take place throughout the month of May culminating with a sanctioned duathlon in Sault Ste. Marie on June 23, 2019.
Alongside the preliminary duathlons, taking place at local high schools, Sonny and the DU283 team will connect with students and community partners, promoting physical and mental well-being. Both physical and mental health
As chair of the AFS Foundation Board, Sonny Spina and the DU283 team have committed all funds raised to the foundation, ensuring all monies collected in support of youth mental health remain local.
Through awareness campaigns and fundraising initiatives, DU283 will raise funds and work to bring clinicians to Sault Ste. Marie, ensuring every infant, child, youth, adult, and family will get the mental health care they need.
With your support, we can continue to inspire hope and wellness within our community. “Every child matters and mental health matters. Together we can help the kids who can’t help themselves. We appreciate your consideration and hope you will join us on this journey.” -Sonny Spina

FundScrip allows individuals to purchase gift cards while supporting an organization or charity of their choice. When you choose to support AFS Foundation, a percentage of the total cost of the gift card comes back to the Foundation despite any additional costs for the gift card buyer. This means that if you were to purchase $100 for Roots for example, $10 will be donated to the Foundation while the gift card is still worth the $100 that was paid for it. This means no additional cost for you – the gift card is received at face value but we also benefit from your purchase. There are countless retail options to choose from.
Gift cards can be ordered online by selecting the “Purchase Online” button below and using our invitation code CKTMPT. This method will ship gift cards directly to your home for a small shipping fee.
If you would like to place a gift card order in person, please call us at
(705) 945.5050 ext. 2671 or by visiting us at 205 McNabb Street, Sault Ste. Marie.

Golf Fore Kids
The tournament was pushed to September when S&T chose AFSF as the recipient of their June tournament dollars. We’re so grateful for S&T’s hard work that generated a $16,000 donation to AFSF. That money will certainly go a long way in our mission to support youth mental health programs and services at AFS.
The 2019 tournament has been cancelled in lieu of a new fundraising initiative. If you’d like to support AFSF through golf, Winmar has committed all tournament proceeds to AFSF for the 2019 tournament.
