With a focus on supporting causes related to children’s issues, we proudly partner with various charities across Canada with an aim to positively impact the communities in which we operate.

Working hand-in-hand with our employees, suppliers and members of our community, the Foundation endorses programs that support children of all ages, thereby touching the heart of our community.

The Sofina & Amici Golf Classic

We engage our loyal suppliers, family & friends to support our annual marquee event, the Sofina & Amici Golf Classic.

The Sofina & Amici Golf Classic is an all-day event, by invitation only, that takes place at the Eagles Nest Golf Club in Ontario. The day is described as a “day of indulgence” as our guests are treated to various pleasures throughout the course. We rely on the support of our generous suppliers, family and friends in order to raise money for children’s charities. Past charity recipients include: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Toronto and Edmonton. The tournament has proudly raised over $4 million since its inception in 2008.

Each year, we run a national initiative, the Dream Builders’ Campaign, where employees throughout our company organize and take part in various initiatives to raise money in support of children’s causes.

Each and every dollar raised is then matched, dollar-for-dollar, by Sofina Foods Inc., doubling the impact. In 2018, funds raised supported TEN children’s charities across Canada. This national initiative has allowed us to grant numerous wishes for families of critically ill and medically fragile children and we officially surpassed our goal of $1,000,000 since the campaign’s inception only five years ago.
