HeadWay – Victoria’s Parkinson’s Centre is a non-profit society whose purpose is to strengthen individuals’, families’ and the communitys’ ability to manage the physical, psychological and social effects of Parkinson’s.
We are proud to share the same community goals as the sponsors and golfers – awareness and support for people in our community that are faced with challenges.
Originally known as the Save-On Gas Charity Golf Classic, 1993 was the first year of our tournament.
In 1993, Mike and Donna Frost approached Save-On Gas Ltd. for sponsorship of a new tournament that would help fund organ transplant services. Mike had been the recipient of a new heart in 1992 and over the next three years worked tirelessly to make the tournament a success.
In 1996, the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Centre became actively involved in organizing the tournament, and starting the following year the Board of Directors of Save-On Gas Ltd. decided to turn all proceeds of the tournament over to the Centre. That tradition continues today.
In 2006 the tournament became known as the Peninsula Co-op Charity Golf Classic. Save-On Gas is a wholly owned subsidiary of Peninsula Co-op. The name was changed to reflect Peninsula Co-op’s expanding presence in the marketplace as they re-build Save-On Gas sites as new Peninsula Co-op sites.
2014 brought a new change in name. Headway Charity Golf Classic. Title sponsorship remains Peninsula Co-op.
